Im going by the upper road,

For that still holds the sun.

I’m climbing through night’s pastures

Where the starry rivers run;

If you should think to seek me

in my old dark abode,

You’ll find this writing upon the door,

“He’s on the Upper Road.”

    Paul wrote the Marine Discovery Center (MDC) vision that still remains viable today. He was a strong advocate for community and MDC. I had the pleasure of seeing Paul at an NSB Rotary meeting six months ago and was honored to acknowledge his commitment to MDC in front of his peers. For two plus years Paul organized Rotary members to volunteer and help maintain the grounds at MDC. It was several months before we had any idea who was doing the work! This was symbolic of Paul and how he lived. Community was everything and he used his eloquent words and baritone voice to share the stories that needed to be heard. Where there was a need there was Paul.

    You will be deeply missed.

    Daddy Paul... I am so thankful that you were able to visit with us several times here in Houston, and for the times we had to get to know each other. You brought joy and laughter to so many. You will be deeply missed. Love and prayers for you, Momma K, as you face the days ahead sweet lady.

    I love you papa. I will never be the same since you have gone. I wish I could be there to see you off but as you know my current situation makes it impossible. Come fishing with me that day dad for just a little while...before everyone else celebrates you. Kisses and hugs forever. Jacquie X&O
