    Words cannot express the pain and sorrow that you have been forced to face.

    Life seems so surreal right now and your world has been turned upside down.   You have a bumpy road ahead and some days it will be like a roller coaster of emotions.  Just know that God will be carrying you every step of the way.

    It will get easier in time but it will take time.  Just know that you have sooooo many people praying for all of you.   Truly the community is coming together for such a wonderful husband and dad.

    I speak on behalf of the Paquin Family (Lenore, Jill and Leslie) and Joe.

    We love you and you are in our thoughts and prayers through this most difficult time.

    Godspeed Chris
