Paul W Schmidt
“The strength of a man is in his character. A strong man is a great man of wisdom who understands, his top priority is to his family.” ― Ellen J. Barrier
While I have been around my father-in-law Paul Schmidt for a mere twelve years, I am lucky to have known him.
The stories he regaled of growing up, World War II and life's adventure are amazing even in the common. Every person has a story and Paul had some of the best to tell.
Stories of his time spent during the war, working for the railroad, of raising a family, all inspired and loving stories. A man bent on raising a family the best way he could all with a smile upon his face and laughter in his voice.
It was early on Christmas morning, a day when we celebrate the birth of Christ when Paul left our grasp. It is the faith we have in a loving God that we also have faith in the love of our dear Paul. He will live forever in the fond memories held close to our hearts.
I have Paul to thank for a beautiful and loving wife.
I have Paul to thank for the friendship of his other children and their families.
I have Paul to thank for being so gracious and kind to me.
We all have Paul to thank for the freedoms we have today.
Thank you Paul.
God's grace, peace and love upon your new eternal life.
Stay inspired my friends.
