Sending prayers up for sorrow to quickly be covered up with the peace of God, and that your thoughts be that Paul is now planting a grand flower garden in Heaven, and is awaiting your arrival. Wish his retirement could've been spent longer here on earth spoiling his grandkids that he always talked about. So sorry for your sudden loss.
