It is truly heartbreaking to hear the news of Mr. Paul’s passing. It is hard to even fathom it. He meant so much to so many at Country Trails. His warmth and laughter will be forever remembered throughout the halls, and his enduring kindness will never be forgotten.

I have many fond memories of working with Mr. Paul at CT. We shared many laughs and jokes over the years, and I am so grateful that I got to know him. After changing positions, he still always greeted me with a smile and a hug whenever we did see each other. I will keep your family in my prayers. I know this is a tremendous loss for anyone who knew him.

What a very sad day for the family, friends and Central 301. He was such a kind man that showed compassion, kindness and love to everyone he encountered. Our Central family is saddened by the loss of Paul. You never entered the doors of CT without encountering his smile and kind words. My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time.

Mr. Paul changed my life with his smile and temperament. He was truly the jolliest human I've ever known. May those who knew him the best find comfort and peace during this time - please know he's loved and his memory will live on in so many ways, but I'll especially remember him as the man "fixin to".

Mr. Paul will always embody the heart and soul of Country Trails in my memories. His work ethic, humor, and compassion for everyone around him was always apparent. I will always appreciate the way he made sure to meet me at my car on slippery winter days when I was pregnant and the way he’d stop by my office each day to let me know how many minutes (or in some cases hours) of a “psychology session” he would like to book with me for the next day. He was my last, incredibly tearful goodbye when I left Country Trails, and it’s a moment with him that I’ll always cherish. My heart breaks that he is gone.

I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
