To the Editor:
At this time, words are truly inadequate.
To our friends in the community, in our darkest of hours, you were there with a candle, a warm meal, wearing orange, and offering a hug. The sidewalk lit, the curb adorned with flowers, white ribbons on the trees. You held us close and carried us, as together, we said goodbye to Paul.
Today, we understand the power of our neighborhood, and our community. We are grateful, and inspired by your kindness and generosity. Thank you.
Paul has changed our family’s trajectory. He is leading us down an unmarked path to find purpose, to make a difference… to make Paul’s life and death meaningful.
We appreciate your continued patience, companionship, and faith as we navigate this journey, looking for hope and healing.
With all our hearts,
Sue, Joe, and Marc Hoeppner
