    Fond memories of Paul at Mornington Road, teaching the budgie to talk, albeit to "Biffs" disguist. Always a sense of fun and a big smile. I also remember him meeting Gillian his soul mate and my heart goes out to you and your families at his sudden passing. In time I hope you can get comfort and strength from all of your happy times and the love of your family.

    I am going to miss my darling brother so very much. Even though we didn't see each other he was always in my thoughts. I am, and always will be so proud of him. He was a super cool, chilled out guy but most of all a devoted husband, father and grandad. I will cherish the memories of our childhood together. Rest in peace Paul xx

    Dear Gillian, I was so sorry to hear of Paul’s death and want to express our most sincere sympathies to you and the family during this difficult time. Paul was a wonderful person who understood the meaning of the word "team." He made many great contributions to the company and helped it move forward in numerous ways. Please accept my sincere condolences for you and the family. For those of us that had the privilege of calling him "friend" outside of work, we were humbled by his kindness and compassion to everyone around him. He will be greatly missed and we are saddened by his death. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this difficult time. With sincere sympathy, Richard & Sheila Maialetti
