    Fate indeed was giving me a fat smile when my life met Paul’s. Circa 1991 in Maryland, both of us working for the government in different capacities. Paul was at the nuclear facility and I was active duty military— working as an air traffic controller and dating one of his daughters. Paul was outside the day I met him — meet the father day....I was a bit anxious as all guys are meeting the father. Paul just happened to be flying his remote control helicopter —I had no idea he was into aviation or that he knew things about aircraft parts and purposes, so it was an instant mutual attraction and respect soon as we began. And it stayed like that. Paul didn’t go half way with his love and he wasn’t hesitant in helping those fortunate to know him. The man taught me more than he probably realized. He had an uncommon grasp of a variety of subjects and could teach one something new about almost anything a guy would be interested in hahahaha!! Thus he and I spent many many an hour together sequestered in the garage working on cars and projects. It was where he and I hung out together! After Juli and I married, anytime we were in town to visit Paul and I would be found in the garage either continuing projects of ours or doing new ones. Paul was the guy I called for advice. And my love for the man has never ceased. Nor has my belief in the person he was. I most struggle with what he endured and the terrible things that befell his recent life. Because I know him as the man he was in truth. I spent the time with him. As did my own daughter and the other grandkids. It is unfortunate the young ones will not sit his lap, my granddaughter...Paul was never half in with his friends and family. He was solid. He was trustworthy and upstanding. I’m proud to count him as one of the largest of real man examples I’ve known, and been fortunate enough to love back. I’ll see him again. And I’ll not talk till after I’ve hugged him. We Americans also owe him a debt for his Vietnam war service. Thank you Paul. Thanks for a whole lotta reasons sir.
