Paul Grehan - 29 January 1954 - 31 March 2007

Yesterday we put Paul to rest. My eulogy had the entire church laughing, as I talked about him and his completely zany sense of humour. And that's exactly how he would have wanted it. I managed to keep it together until the last minute or so, when a little tear broke through. But I didn't crack completely.

Thank you so much to the more than two hundred people who attended the church. Paul was a very popular guy.

I will miss him very much. We were so close growing up together and into our adult lives. I took the picture above last year at a family get together in my younger brother's house. Paul, Stephen and I loved to get together regularly (as often as we could) with our families and our mother.

However, my mother's favourite shot of Paul was another casual picture taken years ago on holiday in Majorca. My mother, stepfather and Paul were walking down the beach and just asked a passer by to take a shot of them.

Thanks, Paul for being a great brother, friend and quite simply, a great guy.

    So good looks run in the family! Your brother looks like a great guy to spend a day with down the pub. I can't think of a better compliment than that, other than to say he was very lucky to have you for a brother.

    Mike... your brother sounds like a wonderful guy, just like you. It must run in your family.

    You were in my thoughts and prayers all last week. We know your place was with your family, but your "other family" missed you last week and we all sent our thoughts your way.

    mu uncle paul was a great guy. Dad your speach was great and brought smiles to everbodies faces on a very sad day. The only up point is atleast paul is at rest. I love him very much and i will always miss him. he was a great uncle to have. every time i here a joke that a 12 year old would like, i will think of him, coz that was his sense of humour, and i loved it.

    Hey Mike, trust you to get them laughing in the church, im sure your brother would have been proud of you.

    Its horrible to loose someone close like that, but its great that they were there in the first place - great memories of great times - something for you to hold on to.

    Take care x
