I’ll always love you Dad! Each day you strived to live, your body too weak to be. Your love will live forever, Since your heart has set you free. Now you walk so bravely, You feel the pain no more . Angel’s have come to guide you And bring you to heaven’s door. Memories I’ll hold so dearly, Your smile, warmed my heart. And through my life you’ll live, You’ve touched so many parts Hard days may be before me It’s all part of God’s plan. Why you had to leave this world We may never understand. You’ll be alone no longer, And you’d tell me “don’t be sad.” Please believe, you were no burden I’ll always love you dad !! My life has changed forever, Since the day you passed away. In heaven you’ll be waiting To meet me again someday.

I'm very sorry to hear of Paul's passing. I used to work with him at the hospital in the late 90s when I was in high school. He lived near my grandparents and would drop me off there sometimes. A kind man and good human. My thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.
