Today after a seven month battle with cancer Yann passed away. I have had the privilege to share my life with him for 16 years and nothing will ever come close to the world he illuminated for me. My husband, my best friend and my universe. His was the brightest star. I have lost my better half.

Shiva Mourning, 4th August - 9th August
It is traditional for the immediate family to observe a mourning period of seven days. In that time those who wish to pay their respects, spend time comforting Paul or come and reminisce about Yann are very welcome to join Paul at home from 10:00 - 3:00pm each day. If you would like to visit Paul in that period please telephone 07541713340
As it is not customary to send flowers for jewish people in times of mourning and remembrance we ask that you consider donations for a project close to Yann's heart, replanting woodlands in the Jewish Homeland.
