Post a Condolence

Dad, I love you so much and I can’t believe I’ll never see you again for the rest of my life, it makes me so sad that I you will never help me through life and we will never spend 2 hours in wouldmans again, or that when I get a girlfriend or have kids or have something going on in my life I won’t have the best dad in the world with me. I love and miss you so much, in the short time I knew you, I was only 13 when you died , you were the best dad I could ever ask for. I remember I would stay up every night till 12 o’clock when you worked at the prison to make sure you got home safe, it makes me so angry and sad that I won’t have you for my life, because you were the blessing and light in our family, and you made cheesy trips to the grocery store seem like a trip to Disney land or going to road ranger at midnight, you were such an amazing father and fucking cancer took you way to early, you still had so much to give this world.I love you so much dad.

I worked with Paul at Dixon Correctional Center for a short while. As I got to know Paul, one thing was for sure, he loved his family dearly. He was always so kind and was a very positive person! I’m grateful to have met Paul and I send my condolences to his family, friends and loved ones. God Bless

My dear lifelong friend Sherri,
My heart bleeds with pain from the loss of such a wonderful and amazing person! Paul was taken off this earth way too soon but now he’s in heaven with Jesus and free of pain.
