"helping them would hide the pain is representative of her rihsteonalip with Paul. I believe that their rihsteonalip would help hide or distract the pain of their past tragedies, however Paul knows it would be better in the long run to help Laura as a therapist, and see a therapist for his own marriage problems, rather than persue a rihsteonalip himself. When Laura got up from the bench, it was an emotional peak in the episode. Laura and Paul had been connecting on a friendly level, and overall helping eachother get through Alex's funeral. But when Paul shared some of past with Laura he mentioned his resentment for his father, who left his mother for a much younger patient. Paul had told her that he promised himself he would never grow up to be his father. Laura wanted to leave because she realized that with her, Paul would be his father. He is a doctor, that would leave his wife for Laura, his patient. I think she realized that Paul and her could never be together. She knows Paul is not like his father, and I believe that she does not want to be the person who makes him like his father.I think that Laura does have geniune feelings for Paul, and that is apparant in the way she has been acting throughout therapy. I believe that Paul does like her, but he recongnizes he does not love her, and won't ever feel for her the way he does (or did) about his wife. I think that because of Paul was so disgusted by his fathers actions, he can never see Laura the way his father his saw his patient. He saw how his fathers behavior hurt him, his mother, and how other people were judgemental, because leaving your wife for a much younger patient, is not only wrong as a doctor, but wrong as a father and husband. Paul is not that person, and won't ever be. It's hard on Laura, but in the long run, I think Paul is better off with Laura as a platonic friend, and nothing more."

"I met Ms. Taylor while stationed at Grand Forks Air Force Base in the 1980's She performed at the enlisted club. She and her husband were there. My husband (now divorced) was from Nashville so they both came from Tennessee and had a lot in common. She was a great entertainer and so very gracious.
I'm glad to have met her. She was a history maker!"

"I was very saddened to read of the loss of KoKo. She was truly a fabulous singer. This is truly a time to draw close to God in prayer. The Bible tells us: “Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you.” (James 4:8) One of the principal ways to draw close to God is through prayer. Do not underestimate its value! The Bible makes this comforting promise: “Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” (Psalm 34:18) It also assures us: “Throw your burden upon Jehovah himself, and he himself will sustain you.” (Psalm 55:22) Please know that your family is in our prayers.
