Four years have passed since the heartbreaking day we lost you Paul Des.
Never in a million years would we have expected such a turn of events. We know you would want us to carry on and we know we have to do so but my heart is forever changed my son. I miss you and love you with all my heart and soul. Not a day goes by that you are not in my thoughts. I will love you through eternity.

Until we meet again ...... love mom.
July 30th.

Happy Birthday my son. You are always alive in my heart. I love and miss you so much.

Love always, Mom
Another moment to think about the void left in so many lives with the loss of a beloved son, husband daddy and brother. Paul Des you have left your special legacy of love on all those who knew and loved you. Your precious Lilly grows with such joy and she knows day by day and story by story that she had a wonderful daddy who gave her life. May God continue to watch over all those who miss you so much
Paul had a loving family and was very blessed with a caring and beautiful mother. Please rest assured that Paul was blessed indeed and while his life was short it was fulfilling due to all those who surrounded him, xo
Oh Paul Des ..... I just miss you SO much my son. I tried to sleep tonight and images of you at the hospital that morning and at the funeral home would not leave my head. I can't stop my tears and I am so very sad. You didn't have a chance to live your life or see your daughter and grief overwhelms me.
I know, maybe better than a lot, that life has to go on but it is so hard. I didn't think I would ever have a greater blow than when we lost your dad, but I was wrong.
I just needed to talk to you and tell you how much I love and miss you. I talk to you every day in my head but oddly it feels more real when I write to you. I guess it is the written word or the fact that this kind of feels like our own little spot. It sounds strange but that is how I feel. This is like our little place to communicate.
Please know you are always in my heart. Time makes no difference son. I love you eternally and I will never stop missing you until the day I die. I just pray you are the first image I have at that moment.
Love you forever,
Another Christmas without you is upon us son. Somehow it seems more difficult than ever and I didn't think that was possible.

I try to keep my thoughts and grief over your passing tucked away in a corner of my mind but they have a way of constantly moving to the forefront.

In my lone moments at home, in the car, just about anywhere, your image is there. I cry alone and try to pull things together to face life.

You would be proud of me as I carry on. No one knows the true pain and sadness that your death has left in my heart.

Your family all miss and love you.
The other day I saw your special ornament on Sarah and Lillian's tree. How sad your little girl only knows you in pictures. She would be your pride and joy just as you were and are mine. " My golden child ".

Please watch over all of us and we will feel your presence at our Christmas table. I have no answers as to why you were taken from us when you had your whole life ahead of you. One day I hope to have all questions answered and see your beautiful smile again.

Love you with all my heart, forever,

It has been three years today since you left us Paul Des. Three full years without your smile, your laugh and your hugs ..... seems incredible.
We miss you so very much and that will never change. If I could turn back the hands of time, I would in an instant.
Since you died there is a little white butterfly that seems to always be around me, especially in my lowest moments, sitting outside or looking out the window or even stopped at a light. I like to think that is a sign from you telling me it is okay Mom. Sometimes I even say out loud, hi son and thank you, when I see it. That may sound a little crazy but it gives me a bit of comfort in the moment.
I know i will see you again but till then please take care of that piece of my heart you took with you.
Love you eternally, Mom.
Dear Brenda & family
Please know I think about you all very often.
Time heals, yet it does not mend. We soldier on because that is what both Paul's want for you. Brenda your grandchild is Paul. Paul's beatiful wife knows this as well. There is some comfort in that. We think we are in control but in reality we are pawns on a chess board.are next move can be great or perhaps it's are final act as the curtain of are life is unveiled to the heavens above.
We here the pawns with no control accept our lot because we have no choice. Brenda please try your best to carry on with a lighter heart. The Paul's in your life are with you and love you and their famalies with their whole being. If God be with us who can be against us.brenda I will pray many hail Mary's today in my nind for paul and paul to touch the hearts and minds of your entire family so that inner peace is within us all. I love you Brenda Caley for you are good as are your family. I love them as well. Amen

Today you would have been 36, my son. This all still seems so unreal to me. It hurts so much not to have you here. Your birthday comes and goes but there is no reason to celebrate. You are in my heart and on my mind today, as you are every day of the year, My love for you is eternal and time cannot diminish the emptiness that your loss leaves in my heart. I love and miss you so very much, Till we meet again ...... mom.
Another Christmas without you is upon us my son. You are so dearly loved and missed.
Your little girl, that you never met, is 2 now. She asks me to open the locket that I wear, she says 'Daddy' and kisses your picture. It is bitter/sweet Paul Des, but I know you are watching over her.
Please hold tightly the piece of my heart that you took with you so that when we meet again, it will be whole.
Today,December 18th, your dad's birthday I see you sitting together, reunited and smiling upon us. I look forward to embracing you both when I am called home.
You are always in my heart, thoughts and prayers. My love for you is eternal.
