Spring Support For Paul!
No, we did not forget and we have not abandoned the website nor the case.
We are still playing a waiting game, unfortunately, but look forward to some news in the short term future.
Just wanted to wish you all Happy Holidays and extend our appreciation for all of your support, contributions, and feedback in our fight to help Paul regain his freedom. Stay safe in your travels!
Peace & Good Will
