Paul Revere's Celebration of Life

Since Paul's funeral service last Monday, Iv'e been trying to think how I thought about it all.  It's been difficult.  The service was a beautiful tribute to Paul and his wife Sydney.  Immediate family and his Raiders were also there.  It was somber of course, but also illuminating and quite funny at times.
  Several speakers related their personal thoughts and experiences they had with Paul, some serious and some 180 degrees from serious. Well, that's showbiz.                                                                                                                                      
   A couple of days ago, I suddenly had a thought. Well, it does happen occasionally.  Paul had turned 76 years old this past January.  The Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4th,1776.  Most likely, many of you out there had already thought of this, but for me, I  thought what a fitting tribute to remember Paul as 'The Spirit of 76". I loved the man, and all he was!
    In closing, I still think the Nampa-Caldwell blvd. should be renamed Paul Revere Blvd. Spread the word gang!                                                                                                                                              
                    later, Charlie

Another thought about Paul.

Since Paul had strong connections with both Caldwell [basically his home town,he grew up there ] and Nampa,  I think the two cities should come together, and rename the Nampa-Caldwell corridor ---------"Revere Drive" what do you think about that!

Revere Memorial

Hi fun seekers.  Though this isn't fun, I needed to tell you about Paul's funeral status. I went to The CATHEDRAL of the ROCKIES where the memorial will take place this coming Monday. Oct. 13, and was told that parking will apparently be a problem.  Boise High school will be in session and it has dedicated parking for a four square block area where the church is located, and they expect upwards of 1500 people to attend. They also said that many of Paul's fans were coming from all over the U.S.! I   think that's very nice.  SO!  The service begins at 1:00 pm. If your'e thinking about going, better get there early because of the parking problem.
  If I find out any more details, I'll be sure to pass them along. Thanks for responding so well to my last message about Paul, he was a dear friend and I thoroughly admired and respected him---ROCK the Angels my friend!
                             Later, Charlie

 hi gang,  just heard my long time friend and boss Paul Revere passed on yesterday. Don't know any details at this time. He was seriously ill for quite awhile, and he and I had some private and meaningful discussions about it ---and they will remain private.
  That's all I have for now, be back later.
