I talked with Micah last night, and the family is doing good, but they do miss Paul as we all do. They do appreciate us doing this bench. Thanks. Eddie P.

I'm curious as to what the bench would look like. And it may be rude to ask but how much will the project cost?

And on a similar tack... I noticed the 'Musician's Hall Of Fame' has a new home. I don't know if they plan to have a display niche for Paul but I think that would be a worth while thing to look into.

It will be like the one there for Pat Travis Eatherly. It's an 8' cast bronze bench with a bronze plaque about who it's for. We are getting one regardless of what it costs, and this is a chance for folks that wanted to do something, but didn't want to do flowers to place something that will be there. Paul told everybody that liked to play better at the Merle Travis Music Center better than anywhere he ever played. He was real proud of it. EP

That's what I wanted to know. A "bench" can be many things and not all of us have had the opportunity to go to KY to the center and see Pat's.
