Paul and Daisy will always hold a special place in our hearts. So many good memories and good times spent together, especially the years when our children were growing up. Camping trips, evenings spent sharing meals and playing cards, and so much more. Their lives have been an inspiration to us all, and we have so very much been blessed from their friendship.

Paul was my first supervisor at American Airlines in 1968. He was a very careing and fair.
Glad to have known him.
