Paul And My BoysI have been a Beatle fan forever. When I was a little girl my birthday present was a ticket to Shea Stadium on Aug. l5, 1965. I was sitting only 4 rows from the field. Just before the last song I left my seat to jump over the ba
Flash forward..........30+ years and there was a memorial service for Paul's lovely Linda at Riverside Church in NYC. I grew up in that area and was there visiting my family. My kids and I went outside the church to pay our respects. I think they were about ll and 6. I didn't bring a camera because I didn't think it was an appropriate setting to try and grab a pix. There was numerous media but few fans. I think when people hear 122nd Riverside that scares them so they didn't come. It is a few blocks from Harlem. Anyway, Paul left the church and he was about 20 feet from me. There was a barricade that a two year old could have got around. Due to the solemn event and that I had finally became a mature adult LOL I just made the sign of the cross in Linda's memory and threw him a kiss. When he went into his car my kids bolted and started chasing the car. I couldn't believe what Paul did next. He opened the window and stuck his head out and gave my kids a huge smile and the peace sign. Here he was in such a sad state of mind and still had the kindness in his heart to think of some little kids he didn't know. Paul you are the greatest. God bless you and your family. Guess what? My kids were on the news that night LOL. My husband who didn't come with us was watching the news and saw them. My boys still get a thrill out of Paul giving them the peace sign and now that they are older they really appreciate his greatness.
