To a friend that we love the most! The hardest way is to miss one of the best thing that ever happened in my life. To loose Wild Thing is one of those!

Years ago Paul had a dream that Tito Rudy [his Father, my uncle] handed him a set of keys which symbolized that he were then to take charge and man the "fort". Boy, Paul worked those keys like he owned it.=)) Good times. I would not change a single thing. Paul lived a good life and he lived it to the fullest - no expense spared. I guess
this is the scene where he rides into the sunset, the credits roll and the soundtrack kicks in. I'm OK with that.

Paul put in a good word for all of us with the Man upstairs. Send my regards to Papa, Mama, Tito Rudy and the rest of the people that started this all. As you head back to meet our Creator, look around, enjoy the sights but careful not to break anything. Up there, you can't get away with that anymore. Remember you are now dealing with the real "Don." You will remain in my heart for as long as I live. I love you Paul. See you on the other side.
