Right people, those of you that recognise the fella in this picture, should or will now know that he has been dealt an extremely poor hand in recent weeks. The doctors diagnosis has devastated both Paul and his beautiful Wife and Children, as well as all those that have had the pleasure of experiencing his friendship, humour and personality over the past 50 odd years. Tears have been shed, hugs have been had, BUT theres no way this LEGEND is leaving this planet without his family and friends showing a final appreciation in response to what he has given us over the years. On a personal level I know few people i have never fallen out with, but this sums up Pauls nature and personality to a tee! Always the life of the party, always that guy that you could talk to with complete trust, and always that bloke that would listen and not judge - just advise. A bloke who got lucky in marriage and as a dad, and a bloke that we are lucky to have known. I could talk about this friend for a month and a day, as so many others could. I could talk about targets i would like us all to meet in appreciation of all Paul has done for us over the years, but i know i wont need to - because you already know! So i am asking for you all to give back NOT to this man, but to the family he is totally devoted to. PLEASE, PLEASE give generously people, there are no monetary targets, as no amount can sum up what Paul has given to us in our lives. And SHARE, SHARE, SHARE this page to all you know, as theres always others that like to give to such great causes! #Paul Bird #We absolutely love you #For Pauls family #For every £1,000 raised i will give an additional £50
