There are so many memories with Paul in them that I could share. From the time I was 14, I couldn’t help but to love him. He was a steadfast friend, fierce protector and one of the most pure, loving souls that I will ever encounter. From awkward teen years to having nearly every class together at Holmes to the fairytale love I was fortunate enough to receive from him, he taught me so much in his time here. He taught me to laugh through life and through his love, how to love myself. His love for God and people emanated daily; Nearly every story with him in it seems to contain laughter. Those are the things I’ll never forget. The promise of heaven is certainly much sweeter now!
