My condolences to Paul's wife Betty and his family. Paul and I were related in a somewhat unusual way. His mother was my mother's sister, and his father was my oldest half-brother on my fathers side. That made Paul my first cousin and my nephew. Paul was my senior by two years and three months. Paul and I had some unusually interesting experiences together. I referred to Paul on occassion as being a nut. One case in particular was when he convinced me to go to work in a mental institution with him. Some may be familiar with Appalachian Hall in Asheville, NC. That was where we worked as attendants and bunked together for several months as they had a dorm for workers. It was an interesting experience to say the least. I loved Paul despite all our differences and will miss him very much. He is in the hand of Almighty God now and he will be much better off. RIP my friend! Thomas N. Barnes

A faithful visitor to the nursing facilities in Hartwell. Very talented musician who gave God the credit for his success. Based on his work he should receive a great reward in Heaven as professed by his claim to Salvation and belief in Jesus. Very humble and simple person. Will miss him performing the music and his testimony.
