    I was over the trucking department among other things. Archie was the dispatcher and was over the shop. Paul was a very good driver and very dependable. He was always a joy to be around and as Bob Mitchell said I don’t think he ever met a stranger. He was always ready to go when he was asked to make a run. He took care of the equipment and always let you know if he thought there might be a problem with the tractor he drove or a trailer he was pulling. The last time I talked to him he was having a problem with his eyes and I made an appointment for him with Dr Massey in Mtn home. I know he will be missed. I even tried to get a local phone number for him a couple months ago. May the good Lord comfort you during this time.
