So very sorry to hear of Paul's passing. I remember all those times we played together when we were all kids. Seems like only yesterday.

I was a Grimes pilot back in the 1980's. Paul was very conscientious in taking care of the aircraft. I enjoyed interacting with him. My heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends. May he rest in peace.
