Aunt Wilma and my cousins - I am so very sorry for y’all’s loss. I respected Uncle Paul so very much - he commanded respect by his demeanor and treatment of even us obnoxious numerous nephews and nieces. I suspect it will take a while before you no longer expect to see him walk through the door or answer the phone, but it will pass. Take comfort knowing he is just a memory away and always in your heart; no longer in pain or unsure of what’s happening. Peace is his🙏🏻 I love y’all
