    I met you at Stella Maris as I got off the bus from County double shackle after 7 months. You were one of the funniest and funnest people I’ve ever been around. I remember when I pulled out your clothes out of your closet and your cubby and filled your desk with shaving cream and sprayed shaving cream all over you while you slept. And you jumped out of the covers and you were in your birthday suit and you ran after me down the hall and we just laughed and laughed. And that was just one of the many times I laughed with you bro. We work together with Carl and Gino and Danny and Nick we went to meetings together. We even went to Cook’s together in the RV camper with the rambling crew. Dom Marc Billy Bobby Lura I’m going to miss you dude. I was so sad when I saw you this summer and I gave you 20 bucks. And then I was so happy when I saw you a couple months after and you were okay. And you had surgery and we went to that meeting on Tuesday. And that’s the last time I saw you my dude. But I get to see you everyday in my heart. I love you Paul and thank you for the short few years I got to spend with you thank God I got to meet you. I’ll see you again brother I’m glad you’re safe now and you’re away from all this pain and these people I’m so glad you’re away from it. I love you bro thank you again. Till I see you in the spirit world brother. ❤????❤. PS I cried too much while writing this to care about the grammar and punctuation. Love you guys.
