None of my Sadler Heights, and especially Edward Avenue, memories would be complete without Paul. I'm so sorry that he has left us too soon. Praying for your healing and comfort. Love, Ann

To Mrs. Chapman and Cheryl. I want to start off by saying I am sorry for the loss of your son and brother. All through the years since Paul and I played baseball at Elephants Fork, Ive always tried to keep up with all the players on that team. In my mind today I believe that Paul is the first player from our team to pass away. Through all the years I thought that I would try to have a reunion for the players on that team. But now I feel like I will put that behind me because we lost I believe one of our players and friend. Even though I havent seen Paul in a while I feel as if I have lost a brother. Mrs. Chapman and Cheryl I know you will miss him and so will I. May Paul Rest In Peace. Jim Clark Windsor VA.

Mrs. Chapman and Cheryl, my heart truly aches at hearing of Pauls passing. For many years he and Jeff W. and I were a trio of best friends growing up in Sadler Heights. Were we the Three Musketeers? Maybe. More like the Three Stooges, some might say. Paul and all of you are a huge part of my childhood memories. Although we lost touch in recent years, I often think about those carefree youthful days and all the fun we had. I know you will miss him but Im hoping his memory will sustain you. Much love to both of you at this difficult time. Greg
