Senida, Karen & Jody
We just now learned of the passing of Paul. O my goodness! We are so sad to hear this. After Paul built my dads house he remained our friend & we will miss his visits to the store. May God bless you at this sad time. Know that we will hold you in our hearts always.

I came to know Paul and Seniada from their close relationship to my late husband Primo Contreras.  Among the memories my children and I have with Paul and Seniada are Christmas tree cutting jaunts in the forrest, overnight camping style celebrations, and just many wonderful visits and deep, meaningful talks.  I was saddened to hear of Paul's passing and am certain our loss is Heaven's great gain - there must have been a great red carpet rolled out for him all the way to the holy of holies.  God bless and comfort you Senaida, Karen and Jody and your beautiful families - you have to be beautiful, you came from Paul and Senaida!
