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.

So sorry for your loss. Our condolences and
