How gently sometimes one chapter ends, and another begins. Seamless. Sometimes too there are traumas. My cousin, Paul Brandt, died suddenly at the age of 60, in 2006.
Paul was influenced by Aldo Leopold. Paul is well-known in southwestern Wisconsin, for his gifts of land and savings to conservation.
Paul was a Vietnam veteran and knew he was mortal. He lived simply and left so much for others to enjoy. He left everything so well-organized.
Paul Brandt also established The Lower Wisconsin State Riverway Fund, with the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin. He practiced what he preached. My mother was his godmother.
