I can clearly see his outstretched glove moving to catch my bad and good throws from third base. He was a good, dependable, capable young man and I was delighted at our reunions to see that he had become a good, dependable old man. I give thanks for knowing him turning my formative years. May the blessings of shared precious with his family and friends. Billy Moore

Hurton Family,
So sorry to read of Paul's passing, so many childhood memories of all of you and our Lash street "Gang" flooded my thoughts when I read this. Your Dad was great guy, I will always remember when he and the electric company went on strike and we went and held signs for his support and of of course all the fun fourth of July parties on the street, such great memories due to our parents. Your Dad is at a wonderful place with my dad looking down at us. You will always feel him with you, believe me I know how hard it is to say good bye, but we will see him again. Remember the happy times he had and know that I am thinking and praying that the days ahead will get easier for you all. My deepest sympathy to the entire Hurton Family.
