Dear Paul (a.k.a. Tio Juan Pablo),
I realize I’m just one of hundreds of friends/admirers of J. Paul Taylor. I also believe you and I have one of the oldest connections, going back to when you, my father and aunt were all students at the one-room schoolhouse in Chamberino. The Taylor-Brown connection is over 90 years old, even if I only came into the picture a generation later.
You’ll be receiving numerous accolades from many folks more eloquent than me. Let me just say I’m proud and delighted to know you and call you Amigo…and I wish you good health and extensive contentment now and for the rest of your days–may they be many!
