Dearest Laura, There are few relationships I can say I have envied but your’s was the exception. I remember meeting Paul at Valhalla Vineyard where we had our class reunion. He had this natural and immediate care for others that was endearing. He truly had the kindest eyes! I will never forget how at ease I felt in his presence. I am grateful for the 25 years you had with him. Dear friend, may these treasured memories sustain you through these difficult times. Much love to your entire family, Trina
