  1. Paul. In my life since his birth. Cousin. That is what he called me. Smiling. Teasing. Paul said we tried to kill him when he was little. If I remember correctly the way he told it, he had accidentally burned the bottom of his feet walking in coals around the wash pot so we all took turns carrying him around. He said we put him in the red wagon and tied it to the goat. The goat then ran off under the house which knocked him out of the wagon. I will miss him.
