Dear BMW Club Friends and Fellow Riders,

We would appreciate it if you would forward the obituary below to the Club membership as soon as possible. If you are able we would be pleased to have you join us for Paul's services. We will have details on Thursday for a gathering after the funeral. Motorcycles welcome.

Thank You and God Bless,
Janice, Nicholas, Christopher and Rosemary

Re: Paul Yeager RIP

May Paul rest in the merciful arms of God..

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

May the souls of the faithful departed rest in the mercy of God. Amen.
Dcn Channing

Re: Paul Yeager RIP

Godspeed, Paul - Godspeed to one of the nicest individuals I've had the personal pleasure of knowing. Blessings to the many in his family; to Janice; to Peter (as most know, the co-owner of Lone Star BMW/Triumph in Austin); to Mark and Jan, and to all the folks who were fortunate to have known Paul throughout his personal and business careers.

Re: Paul Yeager RIP

Paul was one of the really good friends I had in Houston. He and Janice had become dependable companions for Debby and me during trips to Fredericksburg and our yearly Houston BMW Club rides. I know I first met Paul at the first club meeting shortly after I bought my '00 LT. Funny though, it seems I've known him forever.

Goode Company BBQ is always on my schedule when I return to Houston and Paul is always who I call to meet me there. I called two weekends ago as usual and Janice told me he had come home from the hospital. I knew in my heart I was losing a great friend.

I'll be leaving today for tomorrow's Memorial Mass. I know I'll go by Goode Co but I may not be able to sit by myself and eat. Man, this hurts.

Re: Paul Yeager RIP

My prayers go out to the Yeager Family. I never had the pleasure of meeting Paul but I have known his brother Peter for years & have heard many stories about Paul.

God Speed Paul
