“You were my neighbor for as long as we can remember, and my family and I are going to miss waving at you when we mow the lawn or get the mail. We didn’t get to know you that well, but we could tell by how nice your son is that he has good parents. We miss you very much.” – A.M.

“Hugs, smiles and I love you is what he gave me every time I saw him. What a precious man Paige was. My family loved and adored him. I will always remember the fun times we had especially the one when we were flying around the mountains in North Carolina with my sun roof down playing Tom Petty songs and singing as loud as we could. Paige once told me that was one of his fondest memories. ” – Maria
