Anyway, its great to hear about Paul's service and yes, as everyone else has said, thanks for letting us all know the outcome of the service.

Paul deserved a good send off and i'm happy he had one.

It's a shame that members of EAB were not able to attend in person to pay our respects to a great great guy.

I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say we would all have been honoured to attend.

Of course

...and then they can decide on how best to use it; be it a donation to the Muscular Dystrophy foundation or a living memorial or whatever else they decide is best

Patricia & Mick, thanks for the update.

You might not understand all this Amiga stuff, but looking around you'll soon see all the great things your son did. Some things might not seem so big but they helped someone, and more importantly will many more in the future.

Whilst peoples interest in reminiscing prevails, Amiga emulating will remain timeless - therefor so too will Paul's Guides, and in a virtual way so too shall Paul... for eternity in Amiga Land of course, where I think he could only be happy and away from any pain or illness in his earlier life.

That's how I'd like to picture him, you'll soon find a favourite way to picture him.

Early times now, but perhaps in the future sometime you'd like to do something like a charity event of a Paul's real family and friends vs his EAB friends at some online computer game (so EABers all over the whole world can play) or quiz. I did that with a real football match when a football-crazy friend of mine died at a young age. Nice tribute and I'm sure if people here agree (and you agree) it will be organised by someone smarter than I.

Hello all,

It's probably about time that we bring the donations / contributions to a close and hand everything over to Paul's family

Why don't we say that it will close by Sunday midnight which gives anyone who still wants to donate / contribute a few more days?

So far we have collected:

PayPal account:
410.88

Barclays account:
70.00 (which was used for the wreath)

Again, great work all

I'm really glad and quite moved to know the EAB was able to achieve this farewell to Paul. Proud of you guys!

And to Paul's parents... I truly wish you all the best, and it'll will be always great to hear from you.
