Memories

I have life long memories of Paul having grown up in Wheeling Church and attending sunday school there where Paul was one of my teachers. I also remember my father ( Howard ) telling stories of the days when he and Paul and others in the area would thrash going from farm to farm to get the crops harvested. I extend my sympathy in your loss but I am also sure that Paul is now sitting at the most important council table in heaven along with all his family and relatives that passed before him talking and planing with God the plan of taking care of the biggest farm of all the one in Heaven that feeds our souls.
