  • Lorna: OUT OF DARKNESS THE LAST STAND! I do like this new tour idea of yours Paul. Like so many millions of others have stated, you have lifted my spirits on a number of occasions. I am not funny unless I am just talking having a conversation with people. So it is hard for me to think of a joke but, my mother and dad are from new orleans I heard you talk about your birthplace many times. I also think you are a Leo by your astrological sign. You Leo's are something else, HAHAHA, the Lion, the fire the laughter and that courageous and funny personality naturally draws people to you, it's the fire, in your heart and spirit. Sent my prayers up to the one and only God many times for you and will continue. I feel your fire. It makes me feel as if we are friends, like I know you, I guess that is how people truly get to know each other, through their spirits. Blessing, and peace of mind , Your friend you never met, Lorna View Post
