Dear Paul and Anne,
I was absolutely shocked to hear of the tragic loss of your son. I don't know if you'll remember me Paul, but I'm another Shrewsbury kid who played ball with you all those years ago. I pray that our gracious God provide you and Anne the graces you need to both carry on and know peace. Every good wish for both of you.

Paul and Annie, there are no words to express our sadness upon hearing the news about Paul. I will always remember his easygoing, fun nature and fantastic smile. David and I saw him last summer when he was our server at Glory Days - we had a good conversation about how he and Jesse were both looking forward to attending VCU. I can't begin to fathom the depth of your grief - I only hope that you are held up and comforted by the love and support of everyone around you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you now and always.

Dear Paul and Annie,

Our hearts are broken on learning on the passing of your beloved son, Paul. Our family reflected on the Reston Little League games that our son, Christian, and Paul were a part of. So many memories of happy times with lots of terrific families.

You are in our thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time. May the wonderful memories you have of your son be of comfort to you now. This is a favorite quote of mine ~ Paul certainly lived this: "And in the end, it is not the years in your life that count, it's THE LIFE IN YOUR YEARS." ~ Abraham Lincoln

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

God bless you always,
Lisa and family
