Through this site I first learned of the Barnstable Beekeepers Association. I became a member and attended the beekeeping classes.
I met alot of great people and learned alot. What struck me the most was the love that Paul and Claire had for their “girls”. I remember the twnkle in Claire's eye when she spoke of beekeeping, and the twinkle in Paul's eye when he spoke of Claire. Not that his affection for her was greater, I think that their affection for one another and beekeeping was wrapped all together. It wasn't just a hobby but a passion for them. A passion that they wanted to share with everyone.
Paul thank you for your patience, your knowledge, your support one your passion. Rest in Peace.
We were so sorry to hear that Paul had passed away. I always enjoyed talking to him most at the Canning gatherings. Nowadays when someone as young as he is gone, it seems far too soon. I regret that you are deprived of his companionship.
Please express our condolences to your children too & know that you & Paul are in our thoughts...every time I see a honeybee!
I know how much your dad's love of his family and his connection to place very naturally became a part of the women that you and Dre are today. I will always think of his spirit playing in the marshes and cranberry bogs of Cape Cod.
Utterly heartbroken and completely devastated. We lost our beloved Papa.
He survived cancer in 2005 but it came back with a vengeance. He fought hard for over a year and a half but ultimately it was too much. I was fortunate to call him Dad but even luckier to truly call him a friend. For more than 46 years he was the husband and best friend to our amazing Mom.
He is the man who taught me that I could do anything I wanted and always made sure that we knew how proud he was of us. He was the man that all others were compared to, and most were found wanting in his shadow. We will miss him every single day but know that he will forever be with us.
He will rest easy and be happy knowing that his dearest family is well loved.
Claire, so sorry to hear about Paul. My condolences to you and your family. charly sullivan (Aubuchon)
