Paul, thanks for all you did for all New Yorkers and for the Coast Guard. You were an extraordinary individual and a good guy. I hope your family is doing alright. I remember when you used to pick me up in the van to go to unit drills in the Coast Guard. I remember the time you also forgot. I thought it was pretty funny even though the officers didn't. God bless you, and you are always in my prayers.
