    We have wonderful memories of our 25 years having Paul as our neighbor and friend. He was always ready to help Rick with his projects and splitting wood. He helped our son Chris rebuild the engine on his Firebird.

    He and Audrie were always giving us gifts and sharing stories about the neighborhood and their early lives. They treated our children like grandchildren.

    They were a rich blessing in our lives.

    Dear Norman & Pam, Wendy & Ken, Kenny & Debra and families,
    Phil and I were so sorry to learn that Uncle Paul passed away yesterday. We were so glad we were able to come to the Hancock Reunion last year and really enjoyed the time we were able to spend with Uncle Paul and the rest of the family. He has lived a long life and I know he is at peace now and is reunited with Aunt Audrie, Corkie and his eleven siblings and Grandpa & Grandma Hancodk. It is so hard to believe that all twelve of Grandpa and Grandma Hancock's children have now passed. I'm sure they are now having their own "Hancock" Reunion.

    It breaks my heart to know that we will be unable to come up for the celebration of Uncle Paul's life but know that we love you all very much and that you will be in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Our prayer is that our Heavenly Father will be with you every step of the way and that his love will surround you and give you the peace only he can provide at this time of loss. All you have to do is lean on him for that love, strength and peace and he will provide as only he can. Just know that we love you all and even though our hearts are heavy we rejoice with you in knowing that we will see your Dad and Mom again, just as we will see ours one day.

    With Love and Deepest sympathy!
    Phil and Deborah (Hancock) Howard
