I met Paul in the early 80`s. We got to know each more in the 90`s when he moved to Ashland. We always talked about cars and guy stuff. I never in my life ever seen him in a bad mood. Just a ez going man that loved his family. His sister was a lot of fun to be around. She could make you laugh. Talked with her on the phone many times. Really hurt inside to lose him and his sis. God has a plan for all of us and that's just the way it is. I will never forget them. Gary Lackey
