    My deepest sympathy to the family of Paul. I worked with Paul at Nutrition Group and it was always a pleasure to talk with him. Yes, he liked to have fun at work with everyone and he was like a son to me because he would ask me for my opinion on certain issues that came up. He.will be deeply missed! May he rest in peace now.

    I’m at a loss for words since I found out that my little cousin past away. I’ve sat and thought about all the times we spent together . From the day he was born to doing flash cards , playing phase ten ( he use to win most of the time )to our last conversation together. Paul had a big heart of gold and always put a smile on your face. He always was helping someone in need and never looked for anything in return. I truly believe that everyone can carry on his legacy by doing at least one act of kindness each day. RIP Little Paul you will never be forgotten
    To his family my condolences and deepest sympathy during this tragic and difficult time .

    I’ll always remember the memories of us growing up singing spice girls word for word and just being kids. Over the years we may not have seen much of each other but he would always get in contact with me to say hi or tell me about his new adventures. He was an amazing person and cousin, he will be deeply missed. Many prayers and love sent.
