I have good memories of hanging out with you at family gatherings as a child-hay forts, mini biking; and, later, gigging for fish, Paul Franklin was always an easy-going, respectful, easy-to-talk-to cousin to me. We're so sorry, Paul, Jenny, Kenny, Andy and families for your loss & you are in our thoughts. May God bring His comfort and restoration of joy.
