Reader tributes

Paul Long was my uncle. Living on the east coast, I would usually only get to see him and his family every few years. I most admired Paul's ability to speak in front of large groups and his youthful and energetic personality. At both my grandfather and grandmother's funeral he did an excellent job doing just this. He was full of energy and life, and I know he loved God very much. Paul loved his family very much also. Just this past week I remember him telling me about Devin and his cross country and how proud he was of him. That said, I wish I had gotten to see him more throughout my life, but the memories that I do have are fond. We miss you, Paul... but we will see you again.
