Haakana, Paul age 64, of Wayzata, passed away March 14, 2016. Survived by sister, Kathleen Harrer; brother, David (Bette) Haakana; many nieces and nephews.
I thought I should share a few thoughts about Paul. He was a gentle soul. I knew him from early grade school. Because of his dyslexia, he attended speech therapy in grade school (Calhoun). As a result, he became sort of a tough guy because he needed to fight against those who would tease him because of his speech issues. As the years went on, both Paul and I were deceived by the insanity of the times and the drug culture. But we both came out of it and found Jesus as our personal savior. I did reconnect with Paul about 8 years ago, and can tell you with certainity that he knew the master, the lord Jesus Christ as his savior. We shared some precious time, maybe a year or 2 before his untimely death. We shared our love for one another, and our mutual faith. I know I'll see Paul again, just as I know that I have been saved by Jesus. It won't be long Paul! Come quickly, Lord Jesus.
