Happy Birthday, Paul

Today would have been my sweet brother's 62nd birthday.  It's so hard to believe... he had so many exciting plans as he was already planning his retirement.  4th of July was his favorite holiday.  I always thought it was because he felt it was because people where celebrating his birthday (and that was probably true as a young boy), but being the brave and honorable American that he was, I think that evolved into his utter love for this country.  He served in the Marine Corps (retired as a Lt. Col USMCR) and then as a G-Man (that's what I always called him).  He was an undying loyal follower of his beloved Midwest City Bombers and Oklahoma Sooners (even getting to meet the three OU Heisman Trophy winners {Billy Vessels, Steve Owens, and Billy Sims} just months before the bombing. 

I miss you, Buddy, and think of you everyday.

Paul D. Ice

"He was one of the first special agents assigned to the U.S. Customs Service Oklahoma City office seven years ago (1988). Paul Douglas Ice, 42, of Midwest City was a senior special agent in the U.S. Customs Service office. "The death of a member of the Customs family is always a sad occasion," said John Hensley, special agent in charge. "The death of Senior Special Agent Ice is especially tragic under the circumstances." Ice was a native Oklahoman who performed investigative duties for the Oklahoma City office.
