Paul's Speech on December 15, 2011

Some of you know that our son Paul died in January of 2012. I posted here, in the past, the words my son Joe found on Paul's computer, words which we think were to be Paul's next speech

But I had never posted the actual last speech which Paul presented. About a month before his unexpected passing, Paul gave this speech to a group of young Catholic adults in Cincinnati.Someone had graciously handed us a CD of that talk when we were at Paul's visitation. 

Finally, last night, I was able to turn the talk on that CD into a YouTube video...actually it's more of a YouTube audio. :)  The picture I'm posting with it is not from that night but from about two years prior to the speech, but I chose it because it shows Paul's joy. 

The video lasts 38 minutes, so pull up a comfy chair and your favorite beverage.  Thank you for stopping by.
