Paul will never have to face the last enemy death, ever again. In the meantime, his acts of faith live on until he stands up alive and whole in the Paradise. Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces."

Mr. Paul was such a dear friend to me. His life displayed his love for his Lord, wife, entire family and friends. He made you feel special and cared for. He would recall stories of our church family and members that had passed on; letting you know he remembered them. I forgot his age because he was always young! Mr. Paul, you will be missed greatly here on earth and I am so thankful that God put you in my life! Now you have the answers we longed for when talking about heaven. Love to all your family!
