“Dear Paula, It’s been nearly 14 years since the dedication of the memorial, you and your husband joined us on that beautiful day in August to unveil a beautiful bronze statue to pay a tribute to the men that lost their lives in that horrible explosion. I am so grateful for not only your skill and talent but for your true compassion in your craft.  While many other sculptors never replied to my inquiries, you not only replied but created an absolutely magnificent statue that to this day is as beautiful as it was at the unveiling.  You will always hold a special place in my heart as well as the hearts of many people.  Just wanted to let you know how special you and your work of art are to not only the families but to our entire community.  You truly are a blessing.”
Sincerely, Randy and Debra Comeau
