My prayers go out to the family!
My last conversation with Mr. Myers included his famous saying "Remember, regardless of your talent level, you can always outwork the others"!

I am so sorry for your family's loss. Paul and I worked down the hall from each other at the courthouse and he was always so humorous and upbeat!
We used to spend times during the day in the hallway catching up on family news and what was new at the courthouse.
I've thought of Paul over the time I've been in the halls and wondered what he was dong. An unforgettable man!
