Paul’s Birthday – It’s a Wonderful Life

By December 19, 2018 No Comments

“Strange, isn’t it?  Each man’s life touches so many other lives.  When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he?”      I love “It’s a Wonderful Life”.  To me, that is one of the greatest movie lines of all time.  I never was able to get through it without getting emotional, but especially now.  Paul would have been 17 today.  I had to take the day off of work because I know how the day would go.  Many people shared memories and photos.  As each one came to us, via phone or text or social media, I had to pause and think, or laugh, or cry.  Many people shared a photo or memory, some that  I had seen before, some that I remembered, some that were new to me.  It was intense, as every day since Paul was born has been intense.  He was a prism that showed many of us a different view of life.  I wish he were here, and I am grateful for all the people who reached out today and shared that they also miss him and and how they remember him.   He touched so many people and I still can’t believe the journey we had together.  “Remember, no man is a failure who has friends”, and he had a bunch.  Thank you to all of you who continue to remember him by reaching out to share your memories, and for those who are making the world a better place through Paul’s Party.  We really appreciate it.
