  5. My thoughts are with you today Sharrie and Kristine and I want to share with you the words that have given me comfort in the past.

    High Flight

    Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
    And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
    Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
    Of sun-split clouds, ‘�� and done a hundred things
    You have not dreamed of ‘�� wheeled and soared and swung
    High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
    I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
    My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .

    Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
    I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
    Where never lark, or ever eagle flew ‘��
    And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod
    The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
    Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

    ‘�� John Gillespie Magee, Jr

  11. Sharrie, Kris and family, I want send our condolences to your family at this time of grief. The airport family has lost it’s king. Durring the last 20 plus years we have shared many stories and fun times. I wanted to share one story that happened about 8 years ago. I used to pick Paul up at his hangar and take him out to shoot prairie dogs.One day we were out shooting up a stom when we heard some sirens coming. They kept getting louder , closer. We started down this dirt road when we found ourselves surrounded by 4 cop cars and officers with their guns drawn.The look on Pauls face is something I will never forget.well we didn’t go to jail but we sure got a good lecture. I want you to know that I would be at the service if not for a previous comittment that is taking me out of town Friday afternoon. As I told Kris when I delivered some food the other day, if there is anything we can help you with at the airport please let us know.Paul will be missed greatly and the airport will never be the same. God Bless your family. Charlie

    I had so much fun running with Paul down to the City Park & back! He had the strongest arms and it was fun to see who would make it home 1st! Paul always beat me!
    Martin, Kylie and Blake had fun with Paul when Patches and Paul took them flying! The kids & Martin still talk about their trip!
    The kids liked how Patches flew with Paul!

    You are in our prayers!
