I read this thread from beginning to end a couple of weeks ago.
Having died a couple of times myself and battling illnesses over the last five years I found Pauls approach and attitude really inspirational and wished I had read it when I was first in Intensive Care and I am gutted that I will never have the pleasure in meeting him. All those that have seem to universally praise him for being a top bloke and a true gent in a sport that I dare say can be easy to set up rivalries at the top level as Paul was at.
RIP and sincere condolences to his family, hopefully they got to have a small piece of christmas before he went.
Thanks Paul, all the best fella,
