  1. I’m so thankful I had the opportunity of knowing Paul through my good friend Robin. Paul always called me “Giggles”. He was an awesome human being. Always made me laugh and he was a good man. His family was very important to him. He will trully be missed.

  2. It is hard to feel sorry for Paul! If I were a camera, and recorded one fiasco between me and Paul, then I would show you what had happened:

    Me: Make it snappy.
    Paul: Excuse me? You do not tell an adult to “make it snappy”. Apologize.
    Me (to Lunch Lady): I’m sorry.
