First met Paul when he was about 10 or 11 and he was a good kid. His Dad was one of my longest friends. Paul worked with me at a lumberyard and he was a good and attentive workers and a joy to work with. I kept in touch with him as the years went by, but certainly not enough. My heart goes out to his Mom and more words evade me. I thought a whole lot of "Paul E." and so did many others. He will be remembered...
