Paul was not just my blood family, but also my brother on the thin blue line. His sudden loss was hard to get my head around. I introduced Paul to the love of his life, who he married and had his only child, a son with. We will always remember his loving heart, crooked smile, mischievous personality and his talent for writing and singing music. To this day and until we are reunited in the house of our Lord, Paul will be missed.
