Goodbye Paul Harvey

I have a lot of memories of riding in the car with my folks and listening to Paul Harvey. And now you can read "the rest of the story."
"(CNN) -- Paul Harvey, the legendary radio host whose career sharing "the rest of the story" with listeners spanned more than 70 years, has died, according to ABC Radio Networks.

He was 90.

Known for his deliberate delivery and pregnant pauses, Harvey's broadcasts were heard on over 1,200 radio stations and 400 Armed Forces networks and his commentaries appeared in 300 newspapers, according to his Web
site.

He had been hosting his radio shows part-time for much of the past year, after recovering from physical ailments including pneumonia and the death of his wife, Lynne "Angel" Harvey in May 2008."

I used to rush to my car to listen to Paul Harvey after Class. He will be missed.

Sigh.

Long pause.

I am deeply saddened that Paul, who I grew up listening to on an Illinois station, has passed away. The only consolation is that he was 90, a life longer than most folks are blessed with, and that we were enriched, captivated and entertained by this wonderful voice and style. "And now, the rest of the story" will take place in Heaven. Thank you, Mr, Harvey. You will not be forgotten.
