My husband Jason Corrick and I would like so send our heart felt condolences to the entire Wetzel family. Paul was my husband's best friend in elementary school at Centerville. He has shared so many fond memories and Paul is in so many of them. School kids being kids and having fun and getting into trouble, like they do. Even his Kingdom hall days. He has left an ever lasting memory on my husband's heart and for this I thank his parents. My husband is very saddened to have learned of this news. Our family sends our deepest condolences and prayers of healing to you all. God bless 🙏

Dan had a heart of gold and was a kind and loving person; he will be remembered for his good deeds. Dan graciously opened his heart and his home to two rescue dogs that were in rural Texas kill shelters, and we will forever be grateful for this. He will be greatly missed by so many people, but he left this world a better place. Aunt Carol & Uncle Mac
