    Paul was one of the first people we met here at Hickory Bay Towers in January of 2008. He has been our friend for the past 4 1/2 years.
    We are so glad that he got to celebrate his birthday with the group this year. It has been a pleasure knowing Paul and Betty. They both have been a blessing to know.
