Decide on Pauls Message

Guys could you all please vote on which phrase we are going to have written into Pauls wreath.

Select 1-4 depending..

Poll is private so don't be afraid of picking the one you like.

1]
Quote:
We, the whole EAB Community, are shocked and in deepest sorrow to lost our beloved friend Paul. He was one of the nicest guys we've ever known, always on the bright side of life. We will miss you forever, Paul. Thanks for visting our planet, Green Amiga Alien. Rest in peace, wherever you are.

Quote:
People do not die for us immediately, but remain bathed in a sort of aura of life which bears no relation to true immortality but through which they continue to occupy our thoughts in the same way as when they were alive. It is as though they were traveling abroad.
~Marcel Proust

Quote:
In losing you Paul we lose a part of ourselves, a part that cannot be replaced through material wealth but in the spirit you gave to us through your presence on EAB which will live on in the hearts and minds of us all through time and space for which the Green Alien will forever be travelling.
Farewell dear friend till we all meet again.

Rest In Peace Paul, love all at EAB

is it normal in UK to have all these lenghty messages???
I personally don't like any of them... IMHO it is a wreath not a book about communities and nerdy stuff... but you know better !

I don't want to stir the pot, but I agree with Keropi. I think it should be a simple message. Longwinded stuff seems abit tacky in such a sensitive time.

Unfortunately I'm unable to donate anything at the moment, which I feel bad about. However, I can assist by saying that since this is going to be a special gift, we'd obviously want it to be the best gift possible. With that said, I came up with a couple of grammatical errors which should be fixed prior to selection. Anyone with any disagreements can happily point out my errors as I'm not exactly an English scholar myself

I've bolded the parts which I've changed. The parts in red I've removed so skip over them as you read.

2 and 3 I haven't touched since they seem to be quotes

I hope that helps.

As with the others, I think it should be kept short and to the point. Nothing springs to mind at the moment, but I'm sure whatever everyone decides will be the best possible option.
