Mr. Paul Gray is my neighbor but has quickly become a member of my family because of his sense of humor, kindness, and very caring ways. I told him that I wanted to enter him in this contest, and he loved the idea until I told him that he would have to show his teeth in a photo, which he refused to do. I can confirm he needs a major makeover in that department. I don’t know how someone can maintain such kindness with such a traumatic past, but he is living proof. He is a friend, father, husband, hero and above all, a Marine. He deserves this – I want to see that smile!
