Paul and I were good friends and classmates at W. A. Pattillo High School in Tarboro, NC.
Although I have not seen or talked to him since we graduated from high school almost 50 years ago, I remember him as being slightly bashful; a quiet, kind, caring and loyal person with an infectious smile. I am beyond saddened to hear of his expiration and his family’s loss. Obviously his wife, siblings, children and other relatives are experiencing a difficult time. I offer a prayer for peace and a wish for consolation. Know that God is in control and He can do anything except fail and make a mistake. Lean on Him.

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28)

Paul was a home boy of mine from Tarboro, North Carolina, a friend and an associate. He will always be remembered for being a gentleman and for his beautiful smile. My sincerest condolences to his family during their time of bereavement. May God wrap his hands around his family in the time of grief; and remember Paul is in God’s care which is the best care that he can possibly be in forever. So celebrate his life and legacy and reflect on all of the positive things he did, what he represented and who he touched in his life/professional career.

With heart felt sympathy,
