    Paul was one of the kindest men I have had the pleasure of meeting. I met Paul and Erica through their son Ozzy, who encouraged me to attend HIS church. I was new to pleasant hill, a soon to be first time mom and single. The Whaley family and HIS church became a huge support for me and I speak highly of this to both my girls and speaking of it feels like home. Sincere condolences to the Whaley family and all the friends of theirs. Paul will be dearly missed.

    I’ve known Paul since we were 16yrs old. Couldn’t miss that unique voice of his anywhere. He was a good friend and an amazing man. My thoughts and prayers are with the whole family.
