Hi Charlene, this Vickie Douglas, I worked with Paul at Walmart. My husband, David and I would have liked to be there tomorrow, but we are both sick and can\'t make it. But we will thinking of you and the family. Paul was a great man, a great husband, great father, a great friend and he was the best Santa Claus ever. Peace be with you and your family. God has your back. Every time I see a Santa, I\'ll be thinking of Paul. R.I.P. my friend.
