"...To Dust We Shall Return."
I had planned to post the "10 Weird Things About Me" meme today, but sadly, I have to report that a quiet, lurking, reader of my blog, passed away this past Sunday.
Paul was Mrs Gunfighter's supervisor.
They had worked together, to great effect, for several years. Together, with their unit, they produced several well-received educational videos on subjects such as "Terrorism: War Without Borders", the "History of Diplomacy", and "Today in Washington: The Media and Diplomacy", among others.
Paul was a quiet, private, man. He was a diligent Historian, and an effective manager. He devoted his entire professional life to the service of his country. He leaves behind his adult children, as well as many colleagues and people who respected him.
Mrs. Gunfighter turned him on to my blog several weeks ago, and by her reports, he enjoyed it.
Godspeed, Paul. We'll see you on the other side.
