Paul used to come to the gas station (Brady & Amy’s) in Madison several times a year. When we saw him walking up we always knew he was going to give us girls a “hard time” and smiles would flash upon our faces before he could even get in the store. He always kept us on our toes and full of that magical laughter. He always said “I’m back to harass you girls!” Well.....I will definitely miss his “harassment” and will miss him dearly! My thoughts and prayers to all of you during this difficult time. I only wish that your sadness will soon be replaced by the memories of his sweet and magical laugh! (Thanks for stopping in to let us know, Neal. That meant a lot!)
