We send our sympathy to Paul's family. I have known Paul ever since high school days.  He was always a friendly dependable person.  I always enjoyed seeing him when we hauled soybeans into Central Soya and Bunge in Marion. I know you will miss him, he was one of the good ones!

Dear Tim and Family, We have always thought a lot of your Dad (and Mom) as they have always been such kind and giving people. We remember several of our company gatherings at their home in Richwood - we always had a lot of fun and both your parents were right there having fun with everyone from the company! We are sincerely sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Our love and prayers to you.
