Subject: Kaelan Paton Missing
From: GUEST,Lisa Null
Date: 17 Jun 09 - 09:18 AM

Kaelan Paton, son of David Paton and grandson of Sandy and Caroline Paton, has disappeared in a tragic water accident just up river from the town of Falls Village CT. I have just talked to Caroline and am reposting a message from Kaelan's sister Linnea from Facebook:

My little brother, Kaelan, is missing.

Kaelan and his friends skipped school this morning to go to Toymaker's Cafe for breakfast and then would go to school late to catch the rest of their high school classes.

Instead they biked to the Great Falls and went swimming.

The water was high.

Some how or another as far as I've heard - one of his friends was drowning. Kaelan went in again to rescue him. The other boys called 911. The fireman pulled two out of the river.

But my brother is still missing - there have been search parties out all afternoon.

We don't expect to find him alive if we find him at all.

Your prayers and support for me and my family would be much appreciated at this time.

Love,
Linnea

Thanks Lisa for posting this. I spoke to Caroline, Linnea and David this morning. I just came on Mudcat to post this and am now glad that I did not have to do the initial posting. I'm going up to Sharon tomorrow morning. Was just there over the weekend at a Paton family reunion and spent some time with Kaelan in a good conversation just like I used to have with his dad as a teenager. Sandy told me in an e-mail last night that Kaelan went in first and got out. His friend went in and had trouble so Kaelan went in to help him and did but then he disappeared. The water was very high and wild. They never should have been there. Helping his friend was the kind of kid Kaelan was. I just don't have the words.

Needless to say everyone is heartbroken and dealing with this senseless tragedy as best as can be expected.

Sandy Paton was one of the first people I met when I became involved with folk music in Seattle back in the very early 1950s. Shortly thereafter Sandy left Seattle to ramble the world and become a major force in folk music. I have never had the honor of meeting Caroline or any of the young 'uns, but I did see Sandy again at the 1960 Berkeley Folk Festival where he was one of the featured performers. He introduced me to several well-known singers who were there. Even though we didn't know each other that long, I feel that he was a major force in the course of my musical life.

I lost a nephew in a motorcycle accident a few years ago. Tim and a few friends were out one evening to enjoy a ride on a summer evening, when it all went wrong. So I have some idea of just how devastating this sort of thing can be to family and friends.

My heart goes out to Kaelan's parents, to Sandy and Caroline, and to the rest of the family.

There are just no words that are adequate.

Duane & I took pictures at the family reunion Saturday evening. Kaelan had a great time. I was devastated to receive an email from Sandy this morning, telling me about the tragedy. Kaelan was so full of promise--a really exceptional young man--articulate, intelligent, gentle, funny. I can't imagine anything worse than the sudden death of a young person. I called Caroline right after work today. Kaelan's body has not yet been recovered, but they are considering it a recovery mission, no longer a rescue. Some of the family had not yet left from the reunion & some are returning, so the Patons are not alone. My heart hurts.
