PAUL (PAULIE) 2-20-2010


Paulie with the big smile and the eyes that always light up.
Paulie with the funniest belly laugh.
Paulie who felt the need to be my protector when at the underpass.
Paulie with the red nose who reminded you of Santa Claus.
Paulie with the biggest bear hugs you could imagine.


Paulie who took his last dime one day to buy me a rose.


Paulie who only wanted to feel the sunshine on his face.
Paulie who dreamed of one day having his own place, finding peace and no longer being on the streets.
Paulie who always would leave saying “Love ya” and you felt you were truly loved.

I got a phone call on the way to the park today and was told Paulie our beautiful loving friend died today!

“Love ya Paulie”

I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your friend Paulie. How wonderful that you had some time with him and got to know him. He's home safe now.

Rest in peace, Paulie. No more sleeping in the cold...
