Jesus gives us true comfort, he said: “I am the resurrection and the life.
He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.”
(John 11:25) Your beloved Paul has the wonderful hope of a resurrection
to a righteous new world where sickness and death will be no more.
First met Paul selling him movies he would come by with his neat list of movies he had. Always neat in appearance with a shinny truck. Also went to some of his garage sales, as we both loved auctions. My husband was on oxygen and Paul would go over and chit chat with him. Nice guy, sad to hear. Condolences to family.
I am so very sorry for your loss. Paul was always a super nice person and we enjoyed him playing Bingo with the VFW in Wausau.
I always looked forward to seeing Paul at bingo in Wausau. He was always smiling and loved talking about his Dallas Cowboys, which i never missed ribbing him about. He will be missed by many people, our lives are so much richer for having met him.
God bless you all in your time of sorrow.
My deepest sympathy to the Hitz family. May God and your precious memories grant you peace at this difficult time 🕊
