Yes, that was a beautiful post Nolan. Thank you. I wish I could have been there in those final moments, but it wasn't meant to be. I am glad he had you and Ruth there in those final moments.

Wow, just noticed this thread. My sincerest condolences to all those who were close to Paul.

We should all try to live our lives so unreservedly. Our time is so short.

Hug those you love, keep them close and share your feelings: for all too soon, all of us go the way of dust and only memories remain.

Oh Paul, I miss you so and think of you so frequently. I was gifted with recovery and hopefully it will last for a very long tme. I still drink my cuppa teas and so often think of our conversations as we both battled. I take your "balls" with me on every trip, right now in Moab, and leave you lovingly.

What a spirit, what a mentor, what a guy,

I am sad to report that Paul's wife, Ruth aka Gym Birdwall, has passed away ironically from the same type of cancer. She died on December 21, 2012. The cancer attacked her brain and they gave her less than 2 months to live when she found out. She was gone in less than a month after I was informed she had cancer.

I am thankful for Ruth and all she did for Paul and for her willingness to start up "Paul's Balls" in his memory. I am glad that many took the opportunity to spread a little Paul around all over the world and take him on their adventures.
