  1. Your sister Sue says:

    Paul, I’ve been flooded with memories of you these past few days. I remember being so excited as a child when you returned home from the Air Force, our many trips to Missouri to see you and Judy, our trips to Idaho, Terry’s various trips to/with you. Even as an adult, I would get so excited on those occasions when you and the family would return home from Africa. You were always my “much older” brother, I always looked up to you so much; I will always miss you and will always love you.

    • Sandy and Jessie Pairman says:

      We will never forget those wonderful days in Bulawayo when we joined the church. Judy and Paul became such wonderful friends and we had many happy days out with all the church. You were such examples of God’s love.
      Our hearts go out to you and the family.
