To the Children and Grandchildren of Uncle Paul,
My deep condolences go out to each of you in the loss of your Dad and Granddad; I’m sure you will all miss him deeply. He was a very good man all his life, and my favourite uncle. With his crossing over, it leaves us as the next generation to carry on the heritage of the Routhier family. His loss is affecting me more than I thought it would, as may be said for all of you as well. You’re included in my prayers.
