    I was on vacation out of state when my daughter called to let me know Paul had passed away. I would have attended the service. I met Paul many years ago who became a great friend to me and my daughters. I was with a youth group at my church and he asked me to help with, at that time, was the Robertson County Youth Alliance. He was a wonderful Godly man who will be missed. He’s made his Heavenly journey and celebrating with Jesus!

    I was Blessed to call this Wonderful Man of God MY FRIEND. He NEVER had anything but kind words. He has changed MANY peoples lives. To know him was to love him. He was the type that would Light up the room, Any room just with his smile. He sure saved my life on more than one occasion. He just WOULD NOT GIVE UP ON ME. AND I AM SOOOO THANKFUL FOR HIM. This is Also another Life Lesson for me, Although time goes by When you have someone, anyone on your mind, Let them know however they touched your life that you Really Appreciate Them. You NEVER know when God will call them Home……. R.I.P. Buddie… I KNOW U ARE SINGING WITH MY DADDY NOW!!! YOU WILL BE MISSED. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

    I have known Paul longer than I can recall. He and my father were good friends and he came into Daddy’s store to visit as well as shop. He was a man of his word and his integrity was impeccable. Later while teaching school at Jo Byrns, I got to see him more often. I was caught off guard many times when he took my picture. Mainly, I would be at a copy machine! Seeing Paul in the classroom with the students put a smile on my face. He held their attention no matter how squirmy you’d usually see them.
    One night about 3:30 AM, I needed help and called the Sheriff’s department. It was Paul who came and he stayed with me until the problem was under control. I had never heard an officer use such a calm, firm voice talking to a group of youth as he did. He spent at least an hour helping. When the youth walked away, he looked at me and said, “Nancy, I thought about things your Daddy had said to me through the years and I tried to say the same things to get across to help these tonight.” When I got in my car to leave, it was 5:30AM. I later made some goodies and went to the jail to see Paul. I wanted to give him a hug and let him know just how much I appreciated him as a man of the law, a man of God and a good friend. I am so glad that I made that trip to the jail; even though I was scared to death just to go there thinking someone would see me and think I had done something!!!!!
    Rest in peace my friend. You walked the walk with Christ and deserve the rest. Blessings to his family. The legecy he leaves will be hard shoes to fill. You can do it! You only have to remember his teachings and to follow God’s word.
