Papa Paul
Papa Paul, Papa Paul, where have you gone?
We're missing you here in this tear-filled room!
There's a room full of sadness and sorrow
Knowing, with you, we have no tomorrow.

Papa Paul, Papa Paul, where have these things gone?
Twinkling eyes that rival the light of the stars
Deep rich laughter wrapping us in love
Unconditional love and mega-watt smiles
Radiating from you like the sunlight above
Sharing and caring and friendship unbounded
Opinions and advice and playfulness unending
A bigger-than-life personality that surrounded
With teddy bear hugs and a joy-filled demeanor
We're missing these things with you gone today…

Papa Paul, Papa Paul, where have you gone?
We're missing you here, but we'll be okay!
Our hearts are filled with solace, memories and laughter
Knowing we'll see you in Heaven hereafter!

I can\'t even put into words how much I miss him and wish he was still here. I know he is pain free and is probably just like a kid, fishing, visiting old friends and family that have gone before him. I will cherish every memory and hold them close to my heart
Not just my Papa but my best friend as well

"Why did you do all this for me?" he asked. I've never done anything for you."
"You have been my friend, replied Charlotte. That in itself is a tremendous thing." Charlotte's Web. Rest easy in the arms of our LORD, Friend.
