First of all. Barefoot, I did give you a cassette several years ago shortly after my mother's death. You mentioned a legal pad of which I have not found yet.

Its been several years now and I still have not gotten up to going through my mother's belongings. I looked for the tape because I knew it meant alot to you Barefoot. If I find anything else, when I go through her belongs, you know that I would give it to you.

As far as you go Diablo, don't hide behind the message board.

I don't know what the story is behind that, but why did you post that? Why not just honor the man we liked?

So sorry to hear of Paisano's passing. Your stories and memories of him are really sweet and heartfelt.

Telling little anecdotes like this is wonderful! Keeps the memory alive.

Farewell, Paisano.

I don't think I have met a man that inspired the ISLAND MAN in me as much. I truly feel for Tim as I could always see the love and know that it has made me feel right on each visit. May you rest in peace ISLAND MAN- Duane

Oh Paisano! My heart is indeed heavy. I just heard the news a few days ago and though I didn't know Paisano near as well as many of you, I do remember the first time I met him. I had already told my husband Darren about "the legend", so we wanted to make sure we found him during our trip. Sure enough we bumped into him. Darren went to take his picture and Paisano took his hat off, covered his face, turned and tooted his butt towards the camera. The look on Darren's face was classic and Paisano and I laughed so hard we were both doubled over. I remember seeing actual laughter and joy in his eyes as he laughed and at that moment my heart was light. I can't really explain the feeling, I just remember feeling really happy to be alive. We saw Paisano one other time during our trip, he was walking past a couple that looked at him with disdain and gave him a wide berth. Needless to say Paisano gave them a few "gestures" as he passed by them laugh . I remember Darren saying he wished he could sit with Paisano for a week and just listen to his stories. Sadly this will never be but we will always remember Paisano fondly even if only from the one time we met him. Rest in peace Paisano and don't give 'em too much hell wink .

I hate to admit, but I only just found out about Paisano's passing. I got a knot in the pit of my stomach. He was a GREAT guy and brought smiles out of people wherever he went. Yes, he will be missed. I chose my post icon as a smile instead of a frown or sadness for this reason. He did bring laughter and happiness to most all who met him. My memory? My dark haired, dark skinned husband with black beard passed him on the street. For whatever reason, he thought my husband was an Arab. He mumbled something in what I assume was arabic and my husband answered back in the only arabic phrase he knew, He was Totally unaware of what Paisano had said. Paisano got a HUGE grin on his face and rattled on in arabic for a full ten minutes. My husband just nodded. They were fast friends. We bought him lunch at BCs, he slept on our porch at night, and I'd step over him in the morning, leaving him breakfast and a cool drink by his side. We too have the token conch shell. He would wave us down and chase our cart for a ride. Always a gentleman. I even got a kiss on my birthday. He would also smash bottle caps and tell our kids they were precious rare coins.... What a character. God Bless you Paisano!!!! You certainly brought light into this world.
