    I prefer write in French…easier for me.
    Toutes mes condoléances à toi Alex, Susan, Blythe et Josh. J’ai vécu dans votre famille pendant 3 mois, il y a 18 ans maintenant. Je garderai comme souvenirs de Paul comme quelqu’un de doux et de gentil. Je le revois avec son chapeau de « cowboy », toujours le sourire aux lèvres. Et ces moments de musique partagés à la guitare étaient magiques.
    Repose en paix Paul,
    Plein de courage à vous,

    I am translating Noémie’s message:
    All my condolences to you Alex, Susan, Blythe and Josh. I lived with your family for 3 months, 18 years ago now. I will keep Paul in my memories as someone who was gentle and kind. I can see him with his cowboy hat, and always with a smile. And those moments of music shared on the guitar were magic.
    Rest in Peace Paul,
    Have courage everyone,
    In friendship,

    To Paul’s family—- Paul was an easy going fellow you always enjoyed spending time with. I often saw him at the Orangeville Gun Show and we would talk about some project he was working on or a repair he needed help with. Always a pleasure to see him, I feel so sorry for your loss. Rest in peace Paul and I’ll see you again at the big range upstairs.

    Dear Susan and family. I just read about the loss of Paul having been laid up all last summer after a fall, I have been way behind in checking up on my friends. So sorry to hear of Paul’s passing. You were a wonderful family and I’m glad to have been a little part of it for so many years.
