A Toast To Paul Curran..

This is definitely the saddest post I have had to reblog. Paul has been a great friend and comfort to me over the last few years. I hosted his ,If We Were Having Coffee, blog for a long while and he had many readers. He was a lovely man with a huge heart who reached out and touched not only his readers but everyone he met. He lived a varied and rich life and I am deeply saddened by his passing. God bless you Paul we will all miss you. xxxx

See, there's this thing called biology...

Sad news from Mark, With great sadness I have to tell you that Paul Curran has passed away. Paul passed last week.

What can I say about Paul, he was just the epitome of a gentleman, a great storyteller, a man with a good heart who touched so many lives in bloggerville. He was special and many of us sensed that. Paul and I talked nearly everyday about life, love, faith, the universe. He was a good friend, I must have several  hundred comments and emails from him. We had an on-going conversation that spanned years. Paul was fighting cancer, on dialysis, and yet he spent his time reaching out to people, sharing his stories, bringing some Light to our world.

Paul, you were loved and treasured and you will be greatly missed. A toast to a good journey.

    It sounds as if he lived life large, and well. There can be no better epitaph than that, especially for those who also loved, as he did….

    Paul was by far the most prolific comenter on my blog. I confess to looking forward to reading his comments whenever I posted. His comments were always thoughtful and courteous. Those who have met him whether online or in the flesh have been blessed by the best of humanity.
