I like to believe that when we lose someone close to us they still live through us and give us strength. The time we have spent with those we've lost makes them part of us.
We are all left with a large hole from our loss. We will have to trust God to fill it.

I am so very sorry to hear that Paul has passed. We were friends many years ago and I guess it might be 50 years or so since I last saw him. He was a wonderful, wonderful kid. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with his family. God Bless.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Paul was a very special "older" cousin that I always looked up to. Many very fond memories of Paul's visit on our farm in North Brookfield MA and our visits to Clinton.

Roxanne and family,
It's been a lot of years since cousin Paul and I have seen each other which is quite differant from our years of growing up in the Germantown section of Clinton.
Your care and love for Paul up till the end is a very beautiful thing indeed you helped him through the suffering and now he is at piece. I'm sure that his Mom was there waiting for him with open arms. Cherish the memories of the good years that you all had together.

We hope you will not hesitate to let us know if there is anything we can do for you.
