Paul_Pauline a Year On!

(1/6) > >>

TrayBake:
On January 31, 2011 a known member of the community, and a team member here at Simple Machines, lost the one he loved through cancer, this loss effected our friend a lot and he found it hard to live without the one he loved, so on February 14, 2011, Paul_Pauline took his own life.

This effected everyone who knew the couple, it came as a shock to his Friends and Family, and the team were also devastated, the loss of a loved member of our community, a inspiring support specialist.

I personally remember the time at the UK Meet in 2010, when Myself, K@, Gary, Paul_Pauline and Compuart all met up for a weekend in Manchester.  I remember when Gary called on myself in the train station as he and K@ waited for my train to arrive with K@'s family, then we waited on Paul and Pauline whom drove us to the local pub near where K@ stays, and we had a great conversation about SMF.  This was the first time that Gary and I had met Paul, Pauline and k@ (Gary and I met at MoTM few years before).  Next day we met up with Compuart (Gary and I also had met him before) and we all had nice time in Old Trafford Centre (unfortunately Paul and Pauline could not make this), but we did meet them again for a game of pool and darts.

For myself and all that knew them who were upset at the loss of both. So today 14 Febuary 2012, lets all take a moment for our fallen comrade's and think of the support and friendship they gave us.

K@:
In many ways, it seems like yesterday, to me.

That final message he sent me, here, did my head in.

You always have that "Why couldn't I stop/help him?" thing, don't you?

Still, with a bit of luck, they're together, again, in some way, ay? :)

TheListener:
Is there a way the smf forum could have a Rembrance spot for them both?

Time sure flies pass.

K@:
They have one in my mind, mate. :)

Sadly, his site's vanished, now. I guess his daughters decided to close it.

Labradoodle-360:
WOW...time does fly. So sad...he was a very nice guy, missed very much.
