    Dear Graham Family, I am so sorry to hear of Paul's passing. I will always remember the way he made me laugh in the middle of Preacher Orr's sermons at Gethsemane...(and sometimes get in trouble for my outbursts.) He took me on my first "real" date to a dance at Edneyville High School and I will never forget him. God Bless You All!

    Hey Paul. I will never forget how kind you were to me when I first starting to work at Verizon Wireless, you and I continued to be friends. My heart breaks at thought that we will never see you again. Rest in Peace. Love, Pat
