One Condolence for “HARDING, Paul”

  1. Lori Conner says:

    Dear Ina, Linda, Alice, Derek & families,

    Regrettably Rodger and I just learned of Paul’s passing this past week otherwise we would have made a special effort to attend his funeral.

    Our sincerest condolences. Paul was always one of our favourite family friends. I have such fond memories of getting together with your family, our family and the Travers at Christmas. Paul also was Master of Ceremony at our wedding and spoke at Dad’s (Norman) funeral. We remember him as being such a gentle, loving man with a sharp intellect and great sense of humour.

    How wonderful that he and Ina were able to enjoy 7 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren together! Paul would have been beloved by all of them as well as by his many friends.

    We hope your many wonderful memories of Paul continue to support you throughout this Christmas season and throughout the years to come.

    Rodger & Lori (Larson) Conner
