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
