19 Years Later...We Shall Never Forget

Message: Paul..I miss you..I don't have any profound messages tonite, it's late and I'm sitting here just wishing u were at home with Maureen..beyond wishing, kinda begging God, "why isn't he at home with Maureen?" It's beyond unfair, it's horrid, scandalous, shady, beyond description..that's what it is..beyond description. You my friend are sooo very missed, beyond comprehension, beyond our own knowledge. You are missed deep into the tissues that makes us who we are, in our very genes you are missed. When I look at the night sky I know u are there, watching over your family, holding them when they cannot feel it, or maybe when they can. You are there, but I wish for all of their sakes, and selfishly, for mine, that you were here with us, where u belong. I will, until my time comes, rage against God and the universe for taking you before the world was ready to let you go. Maybe HE knows best, but I surely wish HE'D let us in on some of this dark wisdom of HIS...it would make life a bit easier, and that's something we could all use, life to be a bit easier. I miss you Paul, I really do.

Message: Still missing you, still pissed off that you're gone..still hurt and empty when I see your wife's sad, yearning eyes..you my friend made life fun..you made me laugh and smile..a gift. I will never forget you Paul, never. As days pass I don't feel differently, I don't feel as if I was "healed" by the time..I feel more and more angry..more and more I want to say, again, "WHY?" I know the answer won't come, I know it's useless..but still I wonder..I hope that getting some of these degenerates in Iraq with appease the fire inside of me a bit, inside of us all..Paul..I still miss you, I want you home with your Girls..I just miss you, I do..love~Melissa
