Condolence & Memory Journal

To all of Paul's family,

I had the opportunity to get to know Paul at CEW. He was fun to be around and later joined our Sunday Night Fellowship. He always had something important to say and we enjoyed his insight.

He will be missed by our group but pray your family finds comport in our God as Paul did.

Respectfully Todd Misel

Sorry for your loss. I remember Paul from high school as being a favorite of Mr. Carlson in chemistry and physics and his plaid shirts.
