LOSS OF A LEGEND
Following a long and brave battle Paul passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, 9th November with all his family by his side. We are all so devastated and heartbroken but taking strength from the fight that Paul put up over the past 4 1/2 years. We will all miss him so much. Paul was the best husband, dad, grampa, brother, uncle, brother-in-law and friend that anyone could wish for. He was the bravest man we will ever know.
