To my Uncle Paul,

I miss you. I know you are in a better place. You were my hero growing up. You were always so kind and gentle. Your smile was so genuine. I am sorry I was not able to make it to your funeral, but I think a piece of my heart went with you to heaven. You made the ultimate sacrifice trying to keep us all safe. May you never be forgotten.

Niece of Paul
