We are sorry to hear about Paul. We are thinking about you in this difficult time. take care
Dear Brenda and family,
We are so sorry about the death of Paul. When living in the valley he was always a big help to my mother and myself. He was always there when asked for assistance and he was always joking and grinning. I always remembered him coming over on new years eve with his guitar and he played and sang most of the night. I will continue to listen to his music on snipsnap which will always be great memories.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Brenda and the whole family, we will all miss him, may he rest in peace.
Ted, Verna and the Davis family
Hi Brenda, my sincere condolences from a fellow Singsnapper. May you find strength in God and know that He is with you always and loves you dearly. Although I did not know Paul, I have been listening to his music and reading comments and know that he was well loved. God bless you and your family and may you find peace with Him.

Dear Brenda and Families, Paul was a very special person to each of us and he will be missed. We will miss his teasing, his great big wave, his song chats with John, his teasing Joel about the Toronto Blue Jays being the best team, his puttering around the yards with Scott and his doorstep chats with me. Those are only a few of the things we will miss. Your families are in our thoughts and we are right here if you need us.
Brenda,I am so sorry to hear about Paul,He was a very kind and caring man.I am thinking about you and your family having to go through this terrible time.Take care.

Brenda we send you our love and prayers as we share with you the loss of a great man. We are thankful that we will be able to spend many hours in the future with Paul through the great legacy that he has left in his many recordings on sing snap. It remains a regret that we did not meet with you and Paul before the Lord so suddenly called him home. I look forward to meeting him by the river under the tree of life when the Lord calls me home to glory. Lord willing I will be at the memorial service on Thursday. May God be your comfort and strength. Love from your friends forever…Ed and Marlene.
