My dear brother, I can't even begin to tell you how much I loved you or how much you meant to me, but I am sure you a way I envy got to see mama and everyone else first...give them hugs from all of us. I am sooooo proud of the professional way you handled your rig and kept your word to your buddy to your last breath. It was so like you to put everyone elses safety first. I will love you to my last breath. You were one of a kind and you will be sorely missed. R.I.P my dear Brother.

I met Paul when on a road test for Granite Northwest and we became friends. I knew him to be a generous big hearted man with a sense of humor. He spoke fondly of his family, daughter and neice and did not want to give up his Mexican eatin' dog. He wanted so much to go to Alaska with me the next time I went and I'm sorry we didn't get the chance. I'll miss him very much, being new here in Washington, he was practically my only friend. It was just like him to bring his rig to a stop safely, thinking of others in his final moments, may God be with you, Paul.

I will miss Paul a lot. I enjoyed keeping in touch with Paul. We had many long phone conversations. We also loved reminiscing about family and childhood memories. I'm also going to miss Paul's quirky sense of humor. He could always make me laugh.

Paul - My family and I will deeply miss you. You loved my three children - Jennifer, Jeremy, and Jerikka very much and had a lot of fun with them over the years. I remember your place out in the Little Belt Mountains of Montana - what a wonderful view and a peaceful place this was. I also remember your love for Glacier National Park and the number of times you took your mother there. You were especially good to her and helped her get out of the house. Life is not always fair. It sometimes deals us some cruel blows and we have to deal with them. You did your best to overcome these obstacles and that heart issue you had. I would have been proud to have been riding down the road in that big rig with you on your numerous truck runs. Linda, I, and our children will all deeply miss you. Now that I am retired I was planning on visiting you out West. I will visit Glacier and in that manner will be able to remember both you and your moher. Love - Roger and family

I will never forget the first time that I met Paul. It was at the Christian book store in Walla Walla. It was a very hard time in his life and somehow he ended up at our house and we ministered to him. I believe that God put him in our lives for a short while and I pray that we made a difference in his life. We will always remember him fondly. Love, in Christs precious name Steve & Cheryl
