    What a glorious reunion Uncle Paul must be having with his mother, father, and siblings in Heaven! The love of watching storms must have been a Stroud thing because my Dad, Robert Stroud, loved the thunderstorms! Maybe Dad and him will compare storm stories, ha! I will always remember Uncle Paul’s warm smile and his love of pickin’ and grinnin’! He sure did know how to play! Although we saw each other far and between, it was like we had just seen each other. He was a wonderful man and will be greatly missed.

    Dad was a man of great love and compassion for life not only for his family but for all those who came to know him….A man of nature and music, how he loved flowers and birds, a matter a fact he had a love for all critters except cats..But I must say as he got up in age he found a soft spot for them,LOL….. All the nights spent laying in bed and listen to him playing his guitar and him and mom singing some tune that he cheerished, and I am sure there are many of us children that can relate to that…..He could put a smile on anyone even a stranger….I don’t know how many of you know that when the big storms hit here in Tn Dad would go out and watch for tornadoes and report if any touched ground.. One of the many things he done for all of us…. One of the greatest things he ever did was be a father to all of us not only his children but my brothers and sisters as well… We are blessed all of us to have had him in our life… Love you Dad !! I know that he would want us all to treasure all the good times..remember the good things and that is what I am going to do…. One last thing to you Dad .. have a great time up there with all those you love and missed and sing a song for all of us down here… see you one day !!! <3
