  6. Paul was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend. His love for his family was strong and deep. My sincere condolences to you Karen, and the entire family. Paul will be truly missed.

  7. Paul was a great friend and the true soul mate for Karen. It’s such a wonderful thing to see soul mates that find each other and grow as one as you both did. We had a lot of fun tubing down the river, celebrating birthdays and other wonderful lifetime events. There were so many times he made us fall over laughing with his crazy stories and jokes. Paul was a great cook! We all loved to eat whatever he was creating! He made beautiful woodwork for all the places they lived at. I am so glad that he had such a great life with all his beautiful family, friends, and especially you Karen. Paul was a one of a kind beautiful man and will be missed. Karen I’m very sorry for your loss.

I didn’t know he served as a United States Marine but it’s not surprising now that I think about it. Semper Fidelis Paul! You will be missed.

  10. Last summer my daughter, my daughter’s friend and I went to visit Karen and Paul. Paul was so attentive and hospitable. He cooked a delicious breakfast both mornings. He was an awesome cook and didn’t eat his breakfast until everyone else had eaten there’s. He wanted to make sure everyone had enough. Paul Hensley you made that trip a memory of a lifetime.
