I have a small sweet memory of Paul from our mutual attendance at an event marking an anniversary at Gillette Children's Hospital. My son, a patient at the hospital, was young and bored sitting on the grass listening to too many droning speakers. Paul made eye contact with him and the 2 of them made faces at each other. From that time on my son referred to Paul as "My Senator." There are so many of us still proud to claim Paul as our senator.
