I just have 2 words to say about Paul. Good friend. Paul give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. Ask Paul once if he couldn’t do it then, the next time you seen him he be ready then. Good friend, that’s what’s going to keep him in my heart. Anytime I hear yo remember that guy man he was a good friend of mine. I will always be able to say that about Paul was a good friend of mine he would do anything for anyone. Good Friend. Rip my friend Rip.

My truest and heartfelt condolences to his Siblings , Their Spouses and Children . Paul loves you all so much and I could quote many words he said about you all . He knew he is loved and cared for as tells me thru many conversations . Paul truly has a heart of gold and does live up to his family name . KING. Paul has many attributes that follow in suit with the true meaning of the name King. I’m an Irish King he says loud and we both laugh and those blue eyes full of humor as he could never really take the compliment that I wish he believed as strong as I know it to be . Paul is truly one of the most Awesome and Great People who roamed this Earth. There are never many Great People together at one time however too many substandard less then generic people all together at once. When faced with Great they fear it , reject it , they want to put out the brightness as it’s foreign to them but Sorry . It can’t be done . When Greatness is upon you there is no denying or putting the brilliance out . Generic is dull
And common . For you see even when no longer on this earth Paul’s
Greatness carries on , Brighter then ever . He will always be brighter and better and he will remain walking in his righteous royal way. Paul King ..The Irish King . You are Great. You are my Friend . I love you . I will never forget you.
