I will live life to the fullest & love well just as you exemplified in your life while you were here. Looking forward to dancing, singing, & belly-laughing with you in Paradise. Miss you & your infectious smile my beautiful brother. Kisses!
It seems like yesterday when we used waxed paper to go even faster down that big steel slide in the school playground screaming all the way down!
There is no time like the old time, when you and I were young! Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr said it best, that\’s most of my fondest memories of you brother, the Six Flags, St. Louis trip, WFL football games of the Chicago Fire at Soldier Field and yes, even shoveling gravel in a basement foundation to get ready for concrete. Lunch breaks when it started to rain, looking at the puddles to see if there were \’bubbles\’ meaning it would rain all day and maybe dad would let us go home.
I\’m so glad we were able to have lunch a couple times with Paul since we moved to AZ. Most of my memories are of when Paul was little and all the cousins got together for holidays or just a Sunday gathering. I remember his wonderful laughter & infectious smile. Love the DVD with all the pictures. It looks like a life well lived!!
Your radiant smile and joyful laughter is so very missed.
My heart is truly broken.
I love you Paul.
Someone Is Missing
Let this be a reminder that someone is missing today.
Someone our hearts still hold on to.
Someone who made life so special for all those who gather here.
Someone who won\’t be forgotten.Let us all realize how dearly each of us loved him and oh …how he loved us all.
Paul Cheese… in my mind\’s eye I can see your smile and hear your laughter. It takes me back to a time when were were both much younger. Being around you was always fun. You brought joy to those that knew you. Your loving heart, and joyous spirit will be missed by many.
Not a day will go by where we will not think of you and smile.
