(commentary from brother Orval)

As I recollect, Paul was a task master who had a knack of using his ability to accomplish any task set before him — something he inherited from our father. Our father expected the best effort from Paul at all times. Paul was a tough farm boy who had a farmer’s work ethic. He was blessed with God-given ability and displayed it at what ever he chose to do.
