    Scarcely a day goes by that I don’t think of the time I spent with Paul, Lynn and the family during the early 70’s. Lynn and Paul had a very positive role in shaping my future. Karen & Sherry (and families); you are in our thoughts and prayers.

    So sorry to hear about Paul, he was a good friend I think from the 1st grade thru the 12th grade. I did not see him much since high school but would hear from him. I will let as many of our class mates know as I can. Prayers for your family. Joyce Kelso Johnson
