David W. Paul 1944 - 2013
Friday, May 24, 2013
How strange, I was clearing out some letters today and I found one from David written a few years ago and containing some pictures he had taken when my wife and I were last in Seattle. Then, in the mail today a hand written note from Nancy telling us of David's death. It's going to take a long time to fully comprehend this.

I was in grammar and high school with David in Hankinson, North Dakota. We spent hours together playing and discussing organ music. I didn't have a lot of friends that shared that passion.

Even though we went our separate ways after high school, we did stay in touch and would see each other from time to time. I guess a friendship that has remained for over sixty years has some powerful roots.

I am going to miss David, miss his witty notes at Christmas time and his letters that would come out of the blue. Always a surprise.

The sincerest condolences are sent by Mary and me to dear Nancy, whose friendship we have enjoyed for many, many years.
