The Paudyn Family,
Dear Paudyn Family,
I was saddened to hear of Richard’s passing. My wife Laureen and I offer your family
our heartfelt condolences during this painful time.
Richard leaves a commendable legacy of service and dedication. He led a full life and set a fine example a veteran and a respected member of the Polish community in Canada.
I know that there are no words to ease your sorrow, but please know that your family is in our thoughts and prayers. May God support you and bring you peace through this period of adjustment.
The. Right Hon. Stephen Harper, P.C., M.P.
Prime Minister of Canada
