Paul was one of my dearest friends and truly my brother from another mother. So many fond memories growing up and being complete idiots at times as young adults. Paul was ALWAYS there for me when I needed it! We would struggle to pay the bills sometimes for our apartment but it never went past that. We always just had fun together and didn’t worry about the life crap unless it was something real and then we were there for each other. My coping mechanism is to ignore certain feelings, but I think about him all the time and just wanted to put it out there that I miss him badly and he was amazing! I miss you brother! Thanksgiving always brings it all back for me and I find comfort in knowing you are resting easy! Truly love and mis you!
