I just received the CRA (Cigar Rights of America) Newsletter where they announced the passing of Paul Hernandez at the young age of 38.

He leaves behind a wife and and one year old son.

They don't say what happened.

This is very sad news. Lots of people knew him and loved him.

He was in several of Gary J. Arzt' articles and is pictured in this one I reported on in October. He is right at the top of that article.

I put in a call to Gary to see if he knows what happened as he used to hang out and smoke with him often.

Thoughts and prayers to his family.
