    Darlene, Kaitlind and family;
    As I sit here with tears in my eyes, I cherish my friendship with Paul for almost 40 years. Always a cheerful conversation, maybe a beverage and a joke. He truly was a gift to all that ever met him.
    Rest easy my friend.
    I pray that you will be comforted in your time of need.

    Darlene, Kaitland and families,
    Sorry to hear of Paul’s passing. Will never forget his smile and great sense of humour. No more suffering or pain but safe in the arms of Jesus. Take comfort in that Paul is enjoying a new life in his new home with our Saviour
    May you continue to trust in His Love in the days to come and find peace and happiness knowing all is well. Paul was a fine gentleman and kindness was a large part of his life and because of this he is at peace.
    Sorry we couldn’t get out in the boat for a day of fishing as we plan when he was in the HSC.
    My deepest sympathy to you all and my prayer are with you at this sad time.
