My sincere condolences to you and your family. Dusty has it right. There ain't now words or deeds that can make it any better losing family. Lost my dad in '96 and to this day there is still a big ole hole in life where he was. That hole can not be filled by anyone but you. Use everything you learned from him and put it to good use and others will talk the same way about you when its your turn, and he will be there to meet ya at the gates.

Deepest sympathies

Thanks all for your kind words and prayers.I will keep every one up to date on the memorial and the events that will take place as for now there are friends and family all over this planet and it will take time to get people together.The one thing Paul said he wanted was one more ride and his ashes to be dumped in the prop and spread over his ranch.And no crying just some good blue grass and sweet wine and fine ladys and a cold glass of shine.

Amen, rest in peace Peg Leg.
It sure is tough to loose family. We should all keep what family we have close, once they are gone you sure do miss them.
