    Dear Fenske Family,

    We are deeply saddened and shocked to hear of Paul’s passing. Paul spent a lot of time during his youth playing with my brother Kris at our parent’s house. Paul was quite the hoops player and he participated in many hard-fought basketball games against us older kids in their driveway. He never backed down to a driveway challenge.

    On behalf of our entire family, please know our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Fenske family during this difficult time.

  20. Cheri Knudson

    Kristi and all family members & friends,
    I am so sorry for the loss of Paul. Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss, and also how you are all feeling right now. With time comes some healing, but grief does take a LOT of time. I hope there may be a little comfort in knowing that we at GRHS are thinking of you in your time of need. And someday, you will take some comfort in knowing that Paul is in heaven, and probably enjoying some outdoor fun up there. And, if there is anything I can do, don’t hesitate to ask.
    You are ALL in my prayers,
    Cheri Knudson
