Paul Curran, Gone to lead that convoy in the sky.

Paul first appeared in my comments some few years back. He was always full of wisdom and kindness. I was amazed at how interesting and honest his comments were. 

It was after one such wordy diatribe that I asked him why he did not have his own blog. He waffled on about lack of internet and a decent computer. After some discussion we decided he would contribute to, If We Were Having Coffee, every Sunday Morning on my blog.

Blow me down if he was not soon getting more traffic than my own version of If We Were Having Coffee!!! 

There was no way I could be really jealous though because weather it was a story from his trucking days or the people in and around his apartment block, or even  the people he met and helpped at the hospital he attended for dialysis it was a beautiful epistle or modern day fable. He was an angel, a knight in shining armour he helped so many. Paul helped me and gave me courage and so much strength.

Once Paul disappeared from our pages completely, I got in touch with Mark at markbialczak and then we put out an SOS then Linda G Hill who lives in Canada went round to his appointment and made sure he was okay… That is how much he meant / means to us!

So Paul as much as it grieves me to have to say goodbye it has been a pleasure to have known you. I shall grieve you deeply. Sleep well and be at rest with the universe. 

God bless Paul rest in peace.

    Hugs, Willow, and thanks for introducing me to Paul. He was beyond special. I hope, hope, hope he knew how much we all cared.

    Very special Willow. ❤
    I can truly feel your heart. I can relate to to him bringing courage and strength. He was good at that right.
    Yes, he must rest now with the Angels. For sure he is one of them.
