Dear Audarshia,

I am just seeing this. Thank you very much for posting it. This is Patience. remember me? I bartended at RedLight, way back in the day.

That article, by the way mentioned "family". They never contacted me or anyone else in Paul's family, however I am touched that they wrote & published it. I am touched that you picked up oon it & wrote what you did. As of Saturady night, it's been 10 weeks. I miss Paul just as much today. he was my heart.... my rock .... my future....

Thanks again,

Hey, Patience.

Paul was a great man and an amazing chef, who was very generous with his talents.

I am glad that we all had the opportunity to experience his food as well as his friendship.

I'm so sorry for your loss, and I wish you and your family my condolences.

He will be dearly missed.
