Thanks everyone, from all of us. ⚘
so sorry for your loss brad
Amber, Scott and Brad and families I am sorry to learn of Paul's passing. The last time I saw him was at our 2017 MHS Class of 1952 class reunion. He will be remembered by Class members as kind of quiet but quite a jokester. Thoughts and prayers are with all.
I am so very sorry to see this Amber . Your Dad was such a sweet man . I will keep you and your family in my prayers
