A light to always guide you..."

Illustration from the Windowknockers Dark Testament
of Paul Bearer and the Widow who is the Undertaker and Kanes mother in the story. Incidently, Widows character was portrayed/acted by the very real-life Paula Black Widow Walker
from WCWO Wrestling --unique since she also played this same role in the ring. I havent seen Paula in a while now and often wonder how she is these days.PAUL BEARER AND THE LANTERNS
I have a rather extensive amount of drawings (my own and those from fans mailed into the office) depicting Paul Bearer holding various lanterns, candles, or some other lamp in the dark. All of these appear stem from Summerslam 94 when Paul stood in the center ring with a over-sized, illuminated urn giving the order to Come, Spirit..
Now I suppose you might wonder just how, or even why that meant so much to the people watching. Personally, I cant honestly say myself, but I DO know what it came to symbolize. The lantern is the promise to return
; the guiding light
, which itself is all in turn related to all of us flicking our lighters each & every time the lights went out in the arena. Since Paul Bearer guided Undertaker, protected and kept him, its easy to see how that made sense to a lot of fans.Illustration., cir. 2001
