Update on Raven’s wake in France from Legion...

"A gathering of love as best as I could ever witness in my lifetime,,

I wish everyone who could want to be here could be here,,,,, I have met people whom I never known before that from the first impression are images of Paul in their own way,,, it seen that a gathering of "atoms of people" for ever what we are, have aligned to see how the awareness of a sprit ,,that in that life of this person we can find the "gold of creation",,

He loved without prejudice, almost to a fault,,,,,but mostly,, he showed me how to be a better person,,

among the first of "spirits" of illumination, I hope to greet me beyond the Rubicon,,



Paul was a great friend to many and a legendary bass player. We had formed Mob Research earlier this year and Paul was very excited about getting the record out early next year. We shall all miss Paul incredibly. We love you... may he rest in peace and be raising hell in the afterlife..
