    I sure hate I’ve lost my friend. Getting to know him was an experience I will never forget. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. May God bless you all.
    PS: If you have no plans for the hat Paul is wearing in the picture, I would love to have it as a remembrance. If not, I still have enough memories.
    With Love
    Ronnie & Betty Long
