Friday, October 4

This is a Paul blog today.

As you probably already know, our dear friend Paul passed away early this morning. Some of us were with him thru the evening last night. On Weds. he was still talking and he and I enjoyed going over his truck driving years and talking about his cats. Oh, he sure loved his cats. 

He passed peacefully and so quietly. I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for caring about Paul. I've enjoyed hearing stories about him. He was one special guy and was much loved by his friends and fellow-volunteers. I have enjoyed seeing so many pictures and posts in facebook. Very soon we will have a page on our website to honor Paul with pictures, stories and thoughts. Thank you for caring about Paul. 

This is his obitusary:
