Hello all,

The time has come to stop collecting donations / contributions for Paul... I have now transferred all the money from the PayPal account into the Barclays account and will now be contacting Paul's parents

Here are the final figures:


PayPal account:
410.70

Barclays account:
10.00
70.00 (which was used for the wreath)


Everybody should give themselves a massive pat on the back. Obviously we all know how much Paul meant to our community and as a friend. It's really amazing to see how well we all pulled together and the generosity displayed.

Again, well done all

Hello everyone,

Still waiting for the money from the PayPal account to actually transfer into my Barclays account. Apparently this takes 5 days or so... I'm sure by Monday I will be able to post the cheque

In the meantime I've been in touch with Patricia, Paul's mother and received this lovely reply (of course I asked her if it was ok to post it here):

We have already sent a donation to the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign and also one to Papworth Hospital from the donations made at Paul's funeral service, but what we would like to do, is to buy something for St. Ives Methodist Church, with a small plaque stating something like 'Donated by EAB in Memory of Paul Goates - 20-8-1980 - 9-3-2007'. This would be a very long lasting memorial. St. Ives Methodist Church played a big part in Paul's life (we are not fanatically religious!). He created a website for them, published weekly notice sheets, taught people how to use the church computer etc (website www.stivesmethodist.org.uk). He was much loved and will be missed by many.

We copied all the comments about Paul, posted on EAB and displayed these at Paul's thanksgiving service after the funeral, and many people read them. Some say that this has restored their faith in humanity - people all across the world coming together. EAB made a great impact! World peace is a possibility!

Deffo, a small organised meetup for a few of us to go down, see the memorial and pay our respects would be really nice.

Hello everyone,

Today I recieved the following e-mail from Patricia

Quote:
Hi Damien

To bring you up to date - We have decided to purchase a baptismal/christening font for the church. It is made of wood and will be a very useful, fitting long lasting (many years) memorial to Paul. A brass plaque will be fixed to it saying "In Memory of Paul Goates, 20/08/1980 to 9/03/2007, Donated By E.A.B., Family & Friends." (other donations in Paul's memory will be put towards it, hope you don't mind.) The church also has a book of remembrance, which I have yet to fill in, this will explain what EAB is.

I know this won't please everyone, but as we respect other people's cultures, beliefs, faiths etc., I hope members of EAB will respect Paul's. For those who do not agree, please look at it as a lovely memorial to Paul's life. Will let you know of further progress. Thanks again for enabling us to do this.

A picture of the font we intend to buy can be found at http://www.hfltd.com/

Click on UK, then Furniture, then Fonts and it is the second picture down. Hope you like it!

PS. Paul's Amiga - Some of EAB's members seem to think we live in Cornwall, but it is St. Ives in Cambridgeshire (East Anglia), please could you put this right?

All the best
Thought I'd uploaded the image for everyone to see:
