The world was a better place having Paul be a part of it. Genuine, loving, funny, laughter, many many friends and the happy wanderer. Paul will be missed. My brother said something today, that reminded me of Paul. Paul had told me that he lost so much weight that he had to make his belt tighter so his pants would stay up. Donnie said almost the same thing and it brought me back to that day at West Point.
