To the Editor:

The family of Paul Swanson mourns his passing May 2, 2015. Our hearts are broken, but it is during the time of such sadness we know and feel the love of those around us.

If you came by, or cooked food, prayed with us, or shared a memory, we want you to know how much we appreciate what you did to comfort us and honor him.

From near and far, the care and support shown to us all is overwhelming and there are no words to truly tell you what it means to us.

Paul touched many lives and will always be a part of us.

Again, thank you for your thoughtfulness and please continue to remember and celebrate this very special man.

Karen, Marie,

Pam, Paul and all

the Swanson family

Palm Beach, Fla.
