Gordon Paulson helped hundreds of people, including me, to understand our ancestry. He was generous with his vast knowledge and I am very grateful to him. Karen Olness Torjesen

I really appreciated my Uncle Gordy's kind and gentle spirit, and his sense of humor. My Aunt Darlene could not have married a better man. He was one of the best examples of a Christian husband, who cares for his wife like Christ cares for His church. Whenever we visited them, they seemed like a perfect match, and were complementary and always helpful to each other. They gave each other 14-years of true love.

Gordon was such a gentle man. I got to know him when he helped me with my Boyum ancestry back into Norway. He always kidded me about being "more Boyum" than I was. Miss his smile! Cheryl Boyum Eaton
