Childhood friends

I knew Paul from a very young age when he would visit his grandparents in Springfield.   Paul was one of my best friends growing up.    As a kids we would walk down the tracks to the Springfield mall and have Pizza under the stairs in the mall.   We would go fishing in the creek by his grandparent’s, hike through the woods into Smedley Park and build giant tree forts by the golf course.  When we got older he got me to purchase YZ 125 just like the one he had.   We would go riding in NJ Pine Barrens which was some much fun.   He absolutely loved the outdoors.     

Regrettably I lost contacted with him as we both started our families but he has always been in my heart and on my mind.    I am really going to miss him, but will always cherish the memories we had together.   My thoughts and prays with his family. I am so sorry I didn’t see this earlier or I would have defiantly attended his services.
