    My siblings, Heather and Chid and I, use to play with our cousin Paul when we were kids. I remember Paul liked playing with a little toy boat along the lakeshore. One day we were up to our knees in the water….good times back then…RIP Paul.

    Dearest Sister and Aunt Karen,

    While the loss of a loved one is never easy, even when anticipated, it is most certainly the hardest when they are taken from us too soon. Words cannot describe the pain of a child preceding the death of a parent.

    We are so sorry for the terrible loss your son, our nephew and cousin Paul. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Our deepest condolences. May the memories of Paul and the love of your family surround you and give you strength and peace in the days ahead.

    If there is anything we can do to support you please do not hesitate to call us.

    Audrey, Roger, Deborah, Stephen
