Saddened to learn of the death of Paul - we graduated together from Wheelersburg High School in 1982. He was always funny, kind and, of course, a very talented basketball player. Prayers for your family.

I watched you light Martins Ferry up at the Convo with 42 points...many years ago...I was here to see your eyes light up everytime I would come through your Door and that was often...we just had a connection... we never lost it through all the heartache and loss... you were a big brother to me... Always greeted me with nothing but Love... I knew you since we were teenagers... I played basketball with you... argued with you, but we both never ever ever skipped a beat... I look back at all the pictures and videos that I've taken of you these past 5 years... I will miss my often daily trips to visit you... it had become a part of my life just like waking up... I have to go check on Paul... I rarely let two days in a row go without seeing you... checking on you and wouldn't you know the unusual event of me being busy two days in a row and not being able to go see you... I knew something was wrong when you didn't answer the phone... and I knew it took you several rings to get to the phone... I'm sorry brother... I'm sorry I wasn't there like I always had been or tried to be... I hope you're in peace now .. I hope God is holding you... I love and miss you " Doe Baby " Brad.
