A letter to Paul - 2013

Here we go again.  Another move during the holidays.  It's a house this time.  Everything has been
falling into place lately.  I wish you could be here to see how everyone has grown (even the adults).  All of the cousins are either in, or done with college.  I've been reading a lot, but my reading time is about to be re-purposed for schoolwork, as I finally try to finish college myself.  I've got a little more grey upstairs, and need to be a little more careful with my health these days, but we're going to try to stick around to see all of the cousins turn grey.  Lee and Dawn, and Jill and I have been spending vacations together, and looking forward to more.  It's hard not having you, and mom, and dad around for the holidays, but I wanted you to know that we'll keep the rest of the clan together as much as possible.  Maybe even re-start the old Bruntil "family meeting" tradition.  We'll see.

Say hi to the folks, and any aunts, uncles, and grandparents you may run into.  Take care, and check in on us once in awhile.

Lots of love,

Neil

Has anyone here seen my old friend Paul?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He Loved a lot of people in his lifetime.
They say the Good die young.
I looked around and he was gone.

Has anybody here seen my old friend Paul?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
Lifted to Heaven's Gate on wings of Angels.
They say the Good die young.
I looked around and he was gone.
