Sending condolences to the family. Paul had heart and determination. This will be a hole in my heart. I miss you Paul
I only met Paul a few years ago on Facebook and he was larger than life. I may never have met him in person but I considered him a friend and will miss his presence online. He was a kind soul with a heart of gold!
Paul and I met at work in the early 2000’s. I warmed to him immediately and was enamoured by his sarcastic sense of humour and his dramatic flair. We remained friends all this time and I will fondly remember our nights out downtown for dinner and cupcakes.
My condolences to his family and friends. I will miss him and remember him.
Paul had such a kind and gentle nature. Several times a month for nearly five years, we exchanged Facebook posts and messages about ourselves, our families, shared jokes and had many deep conversations. I will miss you my sweet Paul.
May He Rest in Enterinal Peace. Paul was a sweet soul.
Paul was a Facebook friend for a good part of his fight with Cancer and everything that followed. I came to be extremely fond of him and admired his spirit. It was heartbreaking to be so far away and know his struggles.
Im going to miss him in my life, but know he’s happy now with his beloved Mum and Dad.
Paul was one of the sweetest souls I’ve ever known. His courage during his fight, through all the stresses he faced, was so inspiring. He’s been in my heart since I first met him online, and in my prayers, as well. My heart hurts at his loss, but I’m comforted by the knowledge that he is with his parents and aunt, and he’s no longer suffering. May God bring rest for his soul, and comfort to his family and friends. I’ll miss you always, Sweetie, and I’ll see you again one day. God bless.
All my love,
Paul I am truly heartbroken but I will always treasure the amazing friendship we had till the very end. Thank you for being you. Sending my thoughts and prayers to your family. May you finally be at peace.
Many wonderful childhood memories come to mind when I think of you, Paul. Thank you for sharing a moment in time with me and being the sweetest friend and neighbour.
