|Let the memory of PAUL be with us forever|
"Paul, I know you are celebrating your birthday to with Mary, Carl and Dianne. Know that your girls miss you every day. Happy Birthday!"
"Mary, only another mother who has lost a child can know what this day means to you every year. May you rejoice in precious memories."
"Mary, I feel your loss today and share in that sorrow...They will not come to us, but we shall go to them...What a blessed promise."
"It Is hard to believe that it has been two years since Julie called me an told me that you were gone. That was a crazy time. I felt so awful going through your papers with them. The girls miss you every day. I hope you are watching over them."
"What an endearing walk along a life well loved! Thank you, Mary and family, for always sharing. It may not heal the hole in the heart, but it puts a gentle smile-worn salve on it~~
Sherry Collins Watkins"
"Today would have been Paul's 62nd birthday. I miss him but time has helped me accept his passing. Two years ago we celebrated the 60th and I will always remember that special day. I remember, too, the day he was born, my third child. My baby was beautiful! He always was my baby though 6 ft 2 inches."
"It is February and soon on February 12 you will have been gone from us a year. It doesn't seem possible. I so often want to call you and talk but I realize I can't. I miss you and Dede so much. I pray you are at peace and resting. Your life here on earth was so busy."
"Paul, I was just going through some of my saved e-mail and I realized I wrote you on Feb. 12 at 5:20 p.m. You had passed away that morning but the family had not told me. I was anwering your request to have a telephone discussion about my new computer and a spread sheet you had sent the day before. I will always keep your e-mail and the spread sheet. Miss you so much."
"(Written by John Hacker) As mother and I celebrated her 90th birhtday anniversary with a road trip to Escondido, San Diego and Oceanside, our thoughts were on you and your place in our family. We will always cherish the times we shared together and continue to honor the memories that reside in our hearts. God be with you!"
"Paul, yesterday was Father's Day. it didn't seem right to not send you a Father's Day Card and call you on the phone. There is a hole in my life--you just aren't there. How will I ever get that through my head? You will be 'Forever Missed'."
"Happy Father's Day daddy. I miss you so much!"
"Happy Birthday daddy. I miss you so much! Spent the day with grandma looking at pictures of you and telling stories. It was nice but it wasn't the same without you."
"Today would have been your 61st birthday. It doesn't seem possible
a year ago we were together celebrating at Los Vasqueros, and the waitresses put that crazy hat on you. I wrote about it in "Stories of your Life". The picture is there, too. You seemed so happy."
"I miss you so much, Daddy! I took it for granted that you would always be there even when I didn't talk to you every day. While I know you are finally at peace, I selfishly wish you were still here so I could brag to you about all the milestones Josie is meeting...all the neat things she is doing each day. I love you."
"Paul - Once again this afternoon I thought of calling you to catch up as I maneuvered through traffic, only to remember I cannot. I miss my best friend. So instead, I will place my thoughts on this site in hope that those who happen upon it, will garner a sense of what an incredible man you were."
"I have known your mother about eight years now. Beautiful lady!! I never met you, but feel like I knew you because your mother talked so much about you. You must of been a very special person. You are missed Paul. Rest in peace."
"I still remember how happy you were when you shared with me all those beauiful pictures of you and your family in Picassa."
"Paul, today would have been your father's 92nd birthday but he, too was gone too soon,. It will be 15 years on June 2. I know you are together with Dede and your father--In that I take consolation."
"It has been over a month and your death still isn't real to me. I can't believe I can't call you. I had talked with you the day before and all was well. How can it be? People have to be sick to die don't they? I hope a lot of people will write a tribute even if they didn't know you but know any of the family. It helps when we come to this site. I still want to write your life story."
"I have been thinking about you everyday. I miss you so much!!!"
"Daddy, I miss you so much. I wish with all my heart that you were still here with me. I will miss you forever. Jasmine misses you very much too. She asked me today if we could go home and see grandpa. I don't think she understand. I hope you are at peace. I love you!!!!"
"Dear friend and former boss. Your legacy won't be forgotten. We will miss you. Nick"
"It is a gorgeousl day in California with the white snow glowing on the mountains. This is a view you saw every day from your beautiful home. Tomorrow after the service at the reception we will see that view and think of you. Sleep in peace dear one."
"I wish I had the chance to get to know you better, we did not have the time to become close as a we should have as family. Your life was too short for the things you wanted to do. Rest in peace Paul. You will be missed."
I will love you forever. It wasn't time for you to go. There was so much more of life. But I thank God for the many days he granted you. May God rest your soul. Peace."
