    Please except my condolences. I worked with Paul at ExxonMobil, he was a very thorough and meticulous person when it came to his work. I once worked for him on a project for about a year and I always appreciated his directness, I always knew where I stood with Paul. He had an ability to make you care about the work you did as a craftsperson. His knowledge and expertise will be greatly missed. RIP Paul.

    I graduated with Paul. He was a wonderful french horn player in band. I enjoyed riding motorcycles with him when I use to ride. I’m so sorry for your loss. He was a good dude.

    I haven’t seen Paul in so many years but have such fond memories of this family as we grew up at Cathedral together. I am praying for you all. Love all those Busbees!

    I saw Paul & Karri this past Sept. in San Marcos at my sons funeral and was in shock of the event I really didn’t talk to them and am so sorry. My heart goes out to Karri and her family. God’s Blessing on all of you.

    Meagan my thoughts and prayers are with you in the days ahead. Please do not hesitate to call if you need anything.

    Ann Hayes says:

    I had the privilege of working with Karri and Paul on drapery installations over the past 14 years, and I am greatly saddened over this huge loss. Paul always amazed me with his ability to problem solve the ideas Karri and I would send his way – many of which were probably very frustrating for him! He had a knack for always making things work. Paul and Karri had such a wonderful relationship; their love and devotion to each other was always so evident to me. My thoughts and prayers are with Karri and the family.

    Ketha Jones says:

    Prayers go out to the Family. He was a very smart hard working man. Love to come to the units to help. Could make things magically work. Appreciated his time and efforts tremendously.
