A friend to all

Admin – If this is ok, I’d like to share this. Thank you. – from Debbie Cusick (LostGirl)

I only saw Paul on the cam a few times, but I know I will never forget him. He was a commanding presence, but not just because of his height. You could feel his kind and gentle nature as though he were in the room with you. The world could use more people like Paul.

I’d like to share this poem from a memorial for a friend who left a long time ago. I like to think of Paul as a friend I never met.

Feel no guilt in laughter, he’d know how much you care.
Feel no sorrow in a smile that he is not here to share.
You cannot grieve forever; he would not want you to.
He’d hope that you could carry on the way you always do.
So, talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared, The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared.
Let memories surround you, a word someone may say
Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day,
That brings him back as clearly as though he were still here, And fills you with the feeling that he is always near.
For if you keep those moments, you will never be apart
And he will live forever locked safely within your heart
