  4. Kyria Zafiriades and Lena,
    It is with a heavy heart I learned of Paul’s passing through Father Andrew.
    My deepest sympathy to you both and your family. I remember with a smile having Paul as a student at Waddington School where he always had that beautiful grin, sense of humor, and gleam in his eye. He was a very bright young man and a joy to have in class.
    May you hold in your heart some wonderful memories.
