I remember Paul from when I lived with Clark up on the farm I was 15 he was only 10 . Later I worked with his mother at Economy Forms. Loved her.
Thinking of you during this difficult time. When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.😇
So sorry for your loss.
Thinking of your family during this time of loss. May you all find comfort & strength from above in the days ahead.
