“Paul was such a caring individual. When I first began playing in the Rockwell City church, he would always walk over to the piano and give me a complementary. “Thank you for playing”. I have known about Paul for a long time, since he did taxes for my father, Wayne Hansen. The family has my sincerest sympathy.”
