    Dear Roxie and the Henderson family,
    Please accept our sincere condolences for your loss. We will miss Paul, he always shared his kind and generous spirit with us. He was an inspiration for his dedication and conscientiousness in whatever task he had before him; whether it be tending to his garden, playing the guitar or looking after the people (and animals) he loved. Thinking of you all at this sad and difficult time.

    Dear Paul,
    All the horses came into the barn the other morning – happy to get away from the cold and the ice. I found the bag of “peppermint trail blazing bits” you had bought for them some time ago. Needless to say i shared them all with them, along with the news of your passing. Paris got double!
    They held and hold a beautiful space for your loving heart, your kindness, and your ability to drop everything and share a rub.
    They will miss you, as will Wendy and i, and the puppies.

    To Roxy and family, i only hope your hearts settle and you continue to find the beauty in everyday!

    Dear Roxie and Family

    Our Church family at St. Andrews will miss Paul very much. He was a devoted christian man and shared his time and faith with us all at Church each Sunday. He had a kind and gentle manner and loved his God. My sincere sympathy to you and your family.

    My sincere condolences to Roxie, Marie, Marcus, Jan, Peter, Ruth and all who knew and loved Paul. He was a close friend for over 50 years and we shared many wonderful, crazy and humourous times together. No matter how long the time between visits it was always as if I had seen him the previous day. I cherish his friendship

    Roxie, I do apologize for my late condolences as I just found out about Pauls passing. I know it wasn’t that long ago you were in the post office breaking the news to me. Paul was always very sweet and kind to me whenever he called with a problem or came in to mail something off. My deepest heartfelt condolences to you and your family. I pray in time you find peace. Hugs to you.
