The whole world lost a truly unique individual very recently ... ... Paul Harvey.
I would like to refer you to Chuck's eloquent post in tribute to this fine man. I hope you will take the time to read what Chuck had to say. I echo his sentiments wholeheartedly.
Really, there is nothing I could write that would add anything of significance to what Chuck said, so I'll just close this by including one of Paul's "The Rest of the Story" pieces as currently available on YouTube.
