We are so sorry to hear of Paul's passing. We both grew up in the same neighborhood as the Derexsons and went to school together. We are praying for comfort for the family.

My heart literally aches for Paul’s family and friends. He was a great guy and everyone who knew him, loved him. If you ever needed help and he was around, he was right there to help in any way he could. Paul will continue to be loved and missed by many. Rest In Peace, dear friend and when you get to Heaven, please tell my brother, Rick Arline, That I’ll be there soon as God calls me home.
