Never Again Will We Hear "The Rest of the Story"

I was so saddened to hear of the passing of Paul Harvey over the weekend. I was always so excited when I would be in the car or near a radio when his segment came on. I loved to hear his distinctive voice, his pauses and inflections, and the way he told a story just can not be matched. I would wait anxiously as he would end the segment and reveal whomever or whatever he had been talking about and then that distinctive and now you know the rest of the story. I will miss that.

I was watching the evening news tonight, they did a short segment on Paul, I was unaware that his wife was his business manager, they had a cute quote from him in which he said I never intended on ever being on television but when your wife is your business partner you just do what you are told. Her name was Angel, and she sadly passed away a year ago. As they said on the news Paul Harvey will be missed but he is with the angels now and one Angel in particular. Godspeed Paul Harvey!

I agree...I loved Paul Harvey...He had a voice like no other. He was an amazing guy. I saw that clip on the news too. At least he's with his beloved wife again.
