This is horrible. I got to know Paul pretty well via direct message after the P&R forums went south. I have been getting worried as I hadn't heard from him recently, and now I found this.

A true loss. R.I.P., Paul.

Hi all, this is Paul's friend Kevin from the OP here. I just to want to say that it's been really wonderful to see all these messages of respect for Paul. We had been worried about him being in isolation during the various lockdowns we've had in Ireland, so we were very gladdened to see that he had such a great community around him, even if only 'virtually' - though as a member of a few forums in my time, I know how close those friendships can be. In my eulogy to him I gave a little shoutout to this community, and I thank you for all your lovely tributes, and, more generally, your friendships with Paul.

By the way, you'll probably be amused to know that Paul literally slept with a copy of the ASL Rulebook Folder beside his bed. That was more to do with the shelving arrangements in his bedroom, but I hope it will raise a smile with some of you in this sad time.

RIP Paul.

Note that the messages here represent only a part of the number which Paul's passing has prompted. There are many more in this thread.
