I have remembered you in prayer, JoAnn. It has been a joy through the years to pray for Paul on his birthday through the Foreign Mission Board prayer calendar in Open Windows. God bless you and comfort your heart. With love, Patricia DuBose

Words are so hard to come by at times like this. Thank you for inviting the ladies of our neighborhood into your home. I only met Paul on one occaision and he seemed completely warm, generous and was obviously the love of your life. We are so sorry that he has left this earth but rejoice with him as we know he is with Jesus. Our love and prayers, Carol and Ken Woodard

I was saddened to hear of his death. We lived next to him and his family in Fort Bliss, after coming there from Germany. He used to terrorize (smile) Gisela and me when I spent the night with her! Really lost touch with him later, but was impressed to hear of his education and then his entry into the ministry.
I would really like to get back in touch with Gisela. Look for me on Facebook.

We are so thankful to get to know you and Paul. I will always remember the Bibel Study we had together. It was a blessing to my life. And the many times we met to have fellowship and having a great time together.
Thank you for serving us in so many ways. We pray for you, JoAnn, and we love you.

Joann, I feel unfortunate that I did not know your Paul more than just a "Hi or Bye" as I entered or left your home. I know he was a wonderful man of God from all the comments and memories left by those whose lives he touched. What a nice tribute to his life. When you spoke of him I could feel he was an outstanding husband and friend to you by the tone in your voice, your smile and

It's hard for us to believe that Paul is gone. We can still see him standing at the Brussels airport waiting to welcome us into Belgium. We love you and Paul. As we told Paul stories last night, it was obvious for us that one of Paul's best qualities was his loyalty and faithfulness. If we ever needed Paul, he was there. He was a rock, never ashamed of Jesus, a great friend, a good man. We will

Norma and I were so shocked and saddened to learn of Paul's sudden death. We fondly remember our time together at Mt. Zion, and the joy of knowing you both. Our kinship as former missionaries in Europe gave us a special bond. Please know that our prayers and thoughts are with you during these difficult days.
We love you. John and Norma Herndon
