May 27, 2007 7:51PM

Hello Mr. Farris,

Please let me start by expressing my deepest sympathy for you and your family. I can't imagine what you must be going through, really. I knew Paul for only a short time.

I interviewed him for the job he just started two weeks ago, and was amazed in every way with him...I knew before the interview was over that I had to hire him, and furthermore, I wanted him in my unit, and he did start and join my unit. I've worked at MetLife Auto & Home for 23 years...I started there when I was 21. I was nothing like him when I was his age. I've never interviewed anyone like him. But I don't have to tell you, he was your son. I have 3 sons of my own, ages 5, 9 and 11. I went home after working with Paul after a few days and told my sons all about him, and how amazing this "new guy" was, and how inspired I was by him, and how lucky they would be to grow up to be like him. He was just perfect - smart, motivated, outgoing, handsome, talented, friendly...everything a 23 year old could possibly be. Yes, I only knew him two weeks, but he really touched me, and I am deeply saddened by this.

I didn't know how to contact you, since the office was closed for the holiday, so I found Cathy Cella through Google. She gave me your cell phone number, too, but honestly, I could not speak to you right now without breaking down.

I am interested in any arrangements that will be made, and I will, of course notify the proper contacts in the Human Resources Dept to contact you. Again, I am so sorry for your and your family's loss. If you need to reach me, my work number is. My cell # is, and my work email is. This is my home email, which you can also use. If there is absolutely anything I can do for you, please let me know, anything.

Nancy

Dear Roberta,

No one could possibly expect you to be up and doing with things like email at an awful time like this, but I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you that I'll be flying home from New York on Friday for Paul's memorial service this weekend, and I'm really looking forward to giving you a big hug. You, J, and S have been constantly in my thoughts and prayers since Sunday.

I sent your family a longer expression of my sympathy in the mail yesterday, but let me just say this: you raised a wonderful son who had only too recently become a wonderful man. Paul was one of the most genuinely kind people I've ever met, and I hope you're very, very proud of that--Paul accomplished many impressive things, but to me the most outstanding was his unfaltering kindness and compassion towards others. I am proud to have known him.

Mourn how you need to mourn. Heal how you need to heal. I know I speak for my family and all of Paul's friends when I say our community is here for whatever you need. Lean on us, and please know that Paul lives on in a million happy memories in many grateful hearts.

Much, much love--

Laura

Personal Notes for Paul V. Farris from partingwishes.com

Paul, you were loved by all who knew you. I will cherish every memory I have of our friendship, especially Dane Cook, handle bar moustaches, and my secret trips to hangout with you and the guys. Love you always, until we meet again.

Added by Janice

I can't believe you're gone. I had heard something about a crash up in Somerville but didn't really think anything of it until they showed a picture of you on the television. I'm in shock. I know we hadn't hung out in a couple months, and I look back and wish I could amend that. I'll miss you kiddo and I'll always look back on the times we spent together fondly. Whether it was jamming at shows or just hanging out. Rest in peace.

Added by Shanny

I never met Paul but I was home the night of the accident which took place across the street from my family's house. My prayers go out to all of Paul's friends and family. The neighborhood of Highland and Kidder share your grief and pray for Paul's eternal life. We are so very sorry for your loss.

Added by Diane

Paul was the most amazing person I have ever met. He could make everyone smile and light up a room. He was brilliant and talented. He will never be forgotten.

Added by Randie

I had only met you a couple of times but I could tell just by those brief moments that you were an incredibly sweet, outgoing, and caring person. It pains me to know that something so terrible could happen to someone as nice as you. My heart goes out to your family and friends, may you rest in peace

Added by Nicole

I did not know Paul, but I witnessed the chase and I feared that it would end in tragedy knowing my busy neighborhood streets. It pains me that at that very moment when the SUV flew past my car that Paul was still alive, and yet within moments something terrible had happened. I am truly sorry for the friends and families of Paul and Kate. May Paul's memory live on forever.

Added by Well Wisher

I'd have to say there was only a handful of times I saw Paul, but we did know each other... Paul and Kate were always so much fun to hang out with. Paul, It's just not right what happened. Just know that everyone down here will always remember the good times. RIP. Kate, keep strong, its only up from here...

Farris Family,

May the Lord show you His grace, love, and peace in this time of loss and transition! Stay strong, and trust in the Lord! Remember, although it may be hard to see, He loves you and wants to comfort you and carry you through this! Blessings and peace be with you!!

I didn't know Paul too well, but one of my favorite memories was one we shared together. A mutual friend got us tickets for Game 2 of the World Series, and that evening will remain etched in my mind for my entire life. I'm lucky to have shared that wonderful experience with such a genuinely nice guy. My deepest heartfelt condolences go to his family, and I wish a full recovery for Kate.

Added by Jordana

you were a good friend when i thought i was in the wrong place at Zephyrus. I'm sorry we lost contact.

Added by billy

Roberta, Jon and Scott. My heart goes out to you all. The same thing happened in my family 23 years ago when my sister (age 20) was killed in a car crash. Paul was a wonderful person. He had the best pinewood derby cars and I was always amazed at all of his talents. Paul touched everyone he met. This is truly a great loss for everyone.

Added by Christie, ex-neighbor

I didn't know Paul Farris. I'm a friend of his Dad's. I am outside of Paul's sphere of influence and his music. But, based on what I see here and on MySpace, I realize it is my loss not to have known him. For his Dad, Jon and Mom, Roberta, I shed a sincere tear over this tragic event.

Added by Jim V

Paul, i still cant believe your gone just like that. You gave me a ton of insight about my life and college. The experiences you told me about moving from Minnesota by yourself made me think. The knowledge you shared with me during the interview was amazing and very deep and has now changed my life even more. I never expected a great guy like you to go away like that. Thank you for everything you have done for me.

Added by Pritam

From the Strawbridge family..we are all so very stunned and saddened by the horrific loss of your dear son and brother. Words just are not enough to express how deeply sorry we are. I know Paul rests eternally in peace and safety and that his loving eyes will forever watch over you all. Roberta, my heart is aching for you. Love, Kris

Added by Kris

"And I know you're shining down on me from heaven

Like so many friends we've lost along the way

And I know eventually we'll be together(Together)One sweet day (And all that I know and I'll wait patiently to see you in Heaven)...Although the sun will never shine the same I'll always look to a brighter day Yeah,Lord, I know when I lay me down to sleep You will always listen as I pray"

Added by Janice

Paul,

man, you were one of the few people i knew who kept to your dream in music and even though we hadn't talked forever, it was a great comfort to know that someone else was in the music scene with me. you were a great friend to all and a fantastic gift to the world. you are GREATLY missed. much love

Paul, I miss you.

Added by Alec

i never met paul but i'm friends with some of his friends. i'm so sorry for this loss. it is such a tragic event. my prayers go out to all of you.

Added by Anonymous

I did not know you, but reading these tributes to you - I see that was my loss. You were a bright light; that is very clear. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to all who love you, as well as your girlfriend and the driver of the cab. Rest in peace, Paul.

Added by A Davis Sq. resident

Paul, you were the nicest, most honest person I have ever met in my entire life. It was an honor to work with you and it was a privilege to be your friend. We miss you everyday Paul.

Added by Jon S.

Paul,

My reaction to your death is a testament to your incredible spirit. I feel as though I have truly lost a friend, although I doubt either of us would consider us anything close to that. I remember you in choir, talent shows, your smile, and the unique sound of your laugh. You are missed.

Added by Anonymous

God bless you Paul. I know you are in heaven with my uncle (the taxi-driver). I will always keep you in my prayers.

Added by Josie

Paul, You were one of the kindest, most gentle people I had ever met. It was an honor to work with and know you. You always had a kind word and a smile for everyone. My heart goes out to your family. May you find peace in whatever is after...and may your family find peace and hope here in your absence.

Added by Kathleen D

I did not know Paul very well, but in the time that I did spend with him I immediately sensed what those closest to him have said in the wake of this tragedy. He was such a kind and genuine person-- the type of guy that you wanted to be around, because it just made you feel good.

Thank you Paul.. Keep rocking

Added by Anonymous

I'm so sorry for the Farris family. I was blessed with getting to know Paul through Katelyn since I am dating her brother. She had nothing but good things to say about him and when I finally met him I understood why. He was an amazing guy, no other way to put it. His sense of humor had me laughing to tears. He made Katelyn feel complete and I could see it when they were together. I pray for your family everyday.

Added by Jackie

Paul--I'm sick with grief and loss over the news of your passing. Even though it's been years since we spent time together, my heart is with you and your family. You were one of the most generous and kind and giving persons I have known. You brought joy and light to so many people through your spirit and your music, and my one comfort is knowing that you are in a better and happier place now. May you find all of the peace and joy you deserve.

Added by Emily

I still cannot believe that you are gone as I continue to try to make sense of this horrible loss. Paul, you were such a good and kind person. You helped me out in so many ways that I'm sure you didn't ever realize. I am confident that you are now in a place that allows you to understand how much this world loved you and how empty it feels without you. I will always hold on to the many happy memories that I have of you. I miss you more and more all the time.

Added by Katie S.

Paul was not only my boyfriend, but my best friend! I miss and unconditionally love him equally with his family... I always will! *Katelyn

Katelyn: Sometimes you have to be apart from the people you love. It just makes you love them more...

Emily : Hi, Paul. I've visited this page and paulfarris.org in the past and have thought of you often, but for some reason I haven't been able to bring myself to write anything. It's been so long since we knew one another, but you are one of those rare people that sticks in peoples' minds and hearts forever. Although your life was far too short, you lived it to the fullest and touched the lives of everyone around you. I feel honored to have known you and to have called you my friend. Thinking of you and wishing you peace and joy.

Katelyn E. Hoyt first day of school today... it went really well, babe. but makes me more and more sad that you're not here to talk to about the experience. I'm just sad that you're not here to talk to...

Katelyn: hey babe! I moved this week for the first time since our place. Using all our furniture is hard without you hear to share it... To sleep in our bed is hard too... I feel you every day though, and I can't begin to tell you of the value of how amazing that feeling is. I love you and miss you!

Becca: I miss you, Paul. I'm so glad that I knew you... I hope that I can be as kind and as good of friend as you always were.

Dan: Hey Paul- It's been a year now and it's still tough to think that you're gone. I think of you pretty much daily and always try to do little things that honor you. I finally saw Radiohead live and it was as incredible as I thought it would be. I'm close to starting that big scary career job and launching this adult life that people keep talking about. It sounds overrated, but I'll give it a shot. We miss you down here buddy.

On Paul's birthday, we remember and thank you all for being his friend. As Paul would say, Peace. J&R November 2, 2007

Phoebe: Happy Birthday.

Charlie: Just got off the phone with Dallas. We still miss you. But we're so thankful for the time we had.

Kimberly: you were right about ris paul ric... and a lot of music that I'm finally getting around to listening to. and I wonder what you think of the new radiohead. these are the gifts that keep on giving. you're the best -- i miss you

Rick: man, im out in CO lookin for jobs now in the music industry. (lots of fun). cant stop thinkin how you kept your own music alive and out there. it truly is an inspiration. thank you for everything you gave, and inspired.

Katie: I still miss you.

Diana: oh paul, you are in my heart.

Janice: Miss you so much hun.....never 4gettin u ♥

Eric: Paul, you were a great man. Wherever you are now, I hope you're smiling down on us.

Mike: Tripmynd, The Main Drag & The Minus Scale will be raising money for the Farris/Hoyt care fund. 100% of ticket sales will go to the fund as well as door prizes and raffle sales. Please come out on August 3rd to help these bands pay tribute to Paul and raise money for Katie! All proceeds are going to the Farris-Hoyt care Fund. My band Tripmynd we be going on around 10:30.

Madeline: Oh my God. I thought this was some sort of joke. I barely knew Paul, but I knew he was a great guy. Always appeared together and talented, fun and inspirational. A good listener. Understanding. He wanted meaningful things. And he would have gotten all of them. I'm sure he had already found most.

Emily: i just now heard the news, and I can't stop crying. Paul, this news is heartbreaking. The death of young people is always tragic, but it's particularly terrible when someone as good and as kind and as talented and as wonderful as you were passes on. I hope that wherever you are, you are happy and at peace. Much love to you and to your family.

Mike: my buddy dave called me and told me what happened. i still can't believe it. i'm rocking themark right now in your honor, such a huge inspiration. rest in peace.

Meredith: Thanks for helping connect me to campus my first year, Paul. I would have been lost without it. I hope Heaven is a gigantic record player...

Sarita: i cant believe this has happened to such a great person. i dont know what to say other than life is so fleeting but im glad i got to spend a portion of mine with you. rest in peace x

Paul M.: farris. i miss your music dude. Period thinking of you buddy!

Matt: I didn't really believe it until I read it in the paper...Such a tragedy that you were taken before you undoubtedly would have unleashed something amazing on this world. Best wishes in the afterlife Paul. Keep on rockin.

Sarah: Hi everyone, Paul's family is able to read your posts here, so do not feel like your posts are in vain.

Sarah: I am a cousin of Paul's, and I am hoping to make sure that your s get to his parents and the rest of his family. Use the PartingWishes webpage if you can, send a note if you can, but if you can't, keep posting here - it means a lot.

Jason: I'm listening to Fear of a Blank Planet right now, and goddamn do I miss you. I'm so glad I didn't miss that show because of my stupid job.

Janice: Yes, please post on the site...I sent the link to the Boston Globe in hopes that more people will send love and support to Paul's family and all of his friends.

Randie: Rest in Peace. Miss you so much

Laura: Hi everyone. These are wonderful sentiments and memories to share, but the people who really need to hear them are Paul's parents and brother. I'm lucky enough to have known the Farrises my whole life, and I think they'd really appreciate it if some of his friends took the time to write them a note sharing how much Paul meant to them. For some reason their address is unlisted in the online White Pages, and I want to respect their privacy, but if any of you Boston (or Minnesota) people would like to send them something, please message me and I'd be happy to pass the address along.

The world is missing a good man today, and I miss him too.

Ognjen: Rest in peace Paul!

Liz: I also always wanted to get a dog exactly like Kitsu and name it Farris. Now I will.

Meredith: whenever i hear oasis on the radio, i always think of you and laugh because you were--for some inexplicable reason--a huge fan of theirs. thank you for being fantastic.

Katie: Paul, I remember so many great times hanging out with you while you made me laugh hysterically. I always thought you were such a great person and I remember thinking that the world would be better for everyone if they had a friend like you in it. Everyone will miss you so much, I hope you are in a better place and that you know that you made a difference in so many lives.

Seton: You're greatly missed, man.

Sarah: I only met you once but you were so kind and warm and your smile truly lit up the room. I just remember how you looked at Kate and thought how lucky you both were to have found each other. Life is so short and precious but even in the short time we hung out, you seemed to enjoy every minute of it. I am sorry that I never got to know you better.

Mike: Paul, love you bro! Reality and life are so unfair. Miss you man

Meghan: From EHS to Tufts you were always a friendly face! The way you reached out to Carl junior year at Edina really touched me and made him feel much more at home here. You will be missed.

Ilya: Paul, the worst things happen to the best people. i can't think of a worse thing to happen to a better person. lots of guys are hip, lots of guys are nice -- you managed the rare, rare feat of being both. i guess it's a time like this when a guy can say of another guy, goddamn, did you light up a room when you walked in. no bad times to be had with paul around. i would give anything not to have gone on my stupid vacation so we could have hung out in madison. i'm sure we'd have ended up running down state street yelling "RUGGLES!!!" at three in the morning. anyone who spent any time with you at all knows how lucky they are. if only it could have been more. rest in peace. i'll miss you. goddamn, people -- tell your friends you love them.

Andy: Paul, You were always the kind of guy who would give the "shirt off your back" to a friend in need. I'll always remember sitting in Concert Choir with you making fun of the tenors and the third row basses and being glad we were Back Row Basses together. There are no words to describe how much you will be missed and the number of people who you made smile! You will always be remembered! I miss you. T-

Mike: From the deepest of our hearts, you will always be in our thoughts and prayers. You will be missed by all of us.

Jaclyn: paul, you will always be remembered. i am truly blessed along with everyone else for having met you. you always brought a ray of sunshine to everyone's day. i don't think i ever met someone as kind-hearted and overall...amazing as you. we all miss you and i know you are at peace. we love you.

John: Hey Paul, I wish we kept in better touch the last few years but I will never forget you. You were so kind, genuine and always had a smile on your face. I'll remember kicking it with you and the boys in concert choir and playing guitar in your basement. I'll miss you.

Athena: The best thing that one can do for another who passes away is to remember them, so I will, every day. You were my best friend, my roommate, my confidante, my partner in crime. I let you know how much I loved you all the time, and I am so glad that I did... because all of a sudden you were... and then you weren't...and I will keep on loving you with all my heart. I miss you.

Jeff: Paul, as a fellow musician on the tufts campus I just want to say that your memory and music will always be with me and the rest of the tufts community. I hate to see you go and miss you always. Jeff

Paul M.: Paul, My fellow Paul, my fellow friend. Farris I can not tell you how much you will be missed. I remember back in high school, and that first year back from college, how great of a man you were and ARE. You were always so kind, so honest, so loyal. Paul, You will be missed my friend, I can NOT tell you enough. You brought a smile to my heart and your passion for music is something that I will always remember. I remember hanging in the basement of your place Christmas break freshmen year of college. Paul, you are missed by me, and by countless others. M

Liz: Paul, when we were in 10th grade, you were the only boy I wasn't scared to invite to a dance because I knew you'd be nice to me and we'd have a good time. I can't thank you enough for you kindness and friendship, I just wish I could tell you that now. I only hope that you know how many people will miss you always.

Felipe: Paul you were the best friend anyone could wish for. I still can't believe that you're gone and that we're not going to hang out again. I'll always remember the good times that we had together and what a kind and generous person you were. Everyone is going to miss you very very much. Just know that you had many many people that cared about you and that were very sad to see you go so soon.

Johnna: Hi Paul. Writing to you on facebook seems rediculous, but its all I could think of to do. When you fall out of touch with someone, you always tell yourself its okay because eventually your paths will cross again, and you can catch up later. (Thats what I thought before my brother died too.) Here's a few things I remember about you: your smile. your eyes. the drawing class we took together at the edina arts center. I envyed how well you could draw. you always wrote great stories, but I don't remember them anymore. I think we both did a book report on The Indian in the Cupboard. One year for the talent show you sang Help!" by the Beatles, it always makes me think of you. I dont remember who else was on stage, but I remember you. I'm sorry I didn't get to know the man you became / were becoming.

Scott: There's nothing that can be said to describe how much you'll be missed. I love you, Paul. You were the best brother and friend anyone could ever ask for.

Adam: Paul, I can't believe that this actually happened, and every time I have to talk about you in the past tense my heart sinks in my chest, so I'm going to keep talking about you in the present. You're one of the sweetest, most decent people I've ever known. I wanted to let you know I'm dedicating my record to you - it's being mastered Saturday by Jeff - wouldn't have known him if not for you. It's been an honor sharing the stage with you over the years and producing your music. This isn't fucking fair.

Phoebe: Paul, I can't even begin to tell you how I wish that this was all a nasty dream and that I would be seeing you and Kate next weekend as planned. I at least have the memory of a good evening with you and a fond farewell. No hard feelings, no regrets. You mean so much to so many. I miss you very much.

Randie: words can not even describe. You made every person you were around smile.You were one of the smartest and most talented people I knew. I love and miss you so much.

Michelle: your spirit will live on in the memory of each person who knew you, who you've touched, in each story retold... may you rest in eternal peace, paul.

Janice: Paul i am so sorry i didnt get to see you sooner. I will miss your smile and your warm heart. Love you. Until we meet again. ♥ j

Alec: Paul, Nothing about this is even close to fair or right. I can't even bring myself to think about how something like this could happen to someone who's been as good to everyone around you as you have. I'm glad we had all those long drives up to middle-of-nowhere NH to get to know each other. I'll never forget you. Keep up the Rock. Alec

Meghan: i wish i had known you better. you were a wonderful person. and you will be in my heart and in my prayers.

Thomas: Why?!

Jason: I love you man. I'll never forget the times we spent together. I'm sorry I never got to say goodbye. You'll be in my heart forever.

Kimberly: You changed the course of my life and made me a better person. You had a positive, uplifting influence on everyone around you and not a day goes by that I don't think about you, Paul. I'll miss you and will always love you.

Jordan: paul, shit man. this isnt right. i dont even know what to say... im sorry we didnt get to chill more, continue to explore each others minds a bit more, but i do know that youre a beautiful person, and that is something that will stay in all of our hearts and with all the people youve encountered for as long as we are here. i cant really fathom the fact that you wrote what you did to me before you went out last night... your energy has and will continue to make the universe a better place. i hope youre not upset that i am writing to you like this. so much love, my friend, so much love.

Why a butterfly?

Sharon was a friend of Paul's mom. Sharon passed away in 2013. She had lost a son to cancer several years ago. This is a tough read.
