We just found out about our friend, Paul. We will miss him. He and Eunice were so faithful for years in the Holston Baptist Association Carnival Workers ministry at the Appalachian Fair. They also volunteered at the Baptist Center with the children and provided pies many times for our Thanksgiving meal with the families each year. Paul always let us park in his driveway during the storytelling festival and we would always fellowship for awhile. Then he would offer to drive us to town and come back to get us when the festival ended for the day. He said he asked the Lord each day to use him to help someone that day. Such a precious, sweet man! We loved him and will miss him. We have such sweet memories of him and Eunice.They were always looking for ways to serve others. For the family, we pray for the strength and comfort that only our Lord can give you.
