  35. I don’t recall much about my school years, but for some reason from all the people I’ve crossed paths with, I always remembered Paul and often wondered how he was getting on in life, in hindsight maybe it’s just that he was a loyal and caring friend. My condolences to all who loved him, I’m sorry for your loss.

  38. A friend, then my boss and a friend, then my friend again when I left the hospital many years ago.
    Paul you were a great man with a heart of gold
    you loved cooking (even on your days off) and you cooked a few times at my home, yours and others and we always had a great time sometimes carrying on into the early hours.of the morning.
    I remember driving to Melbourne and your cark broke down and we were both standing in the middle of Stud rd for an hour!. Those were the days.
    You will be sorely missed by many people including me.
    Much Love Y xxxx
