    To Barbara, Terry and family. No parent should have to bare the heart ache of saying goodbye to their child. What a handsome young man with such a beautiful kind face. I am sure the bonds that Paul formed with the many people in his life will be cherished always with loving thoughts and memories. Wishing this was a burden you didn’t have to endure. Sending all our heartfelt love and support. Vicky, Danny, Tamyka and Tremayne

    Flynny you pest! you have left the biggest hole in our hearts now that you are gone. I wish I would’ve told you just once how much I adored your company instead of always joking around, but I feel like you knew. I loved coming home from work and you would just be sitting on our couch playing tab with Matt. Thank you for all the years of friendship you gave to us both. You are the best bloke we know, words can’t describe how much you meant to us. We are going to miss you so much. Fly high Flynny.
    All our love,
    Dig and Lisa
