my son paul
We were best mates joined at the hip some said. We were both in recovery i am clean and sober for 15 years paul 4 years,
paul worked with me and was becoming an important part of the business he ran marathons like me and loved to travel
we were due to fly out to china on business together in october for 2 weeks. everything seems fine.
I was in london on september 7th 2011 spoke with paul in the afternoon and had a laugh and joke as he was complaining of being unwell sympathy is not one of my assets.
little did i know that would be the last time we would speak.
He didnt contact me on thursday which was strange and on friday am i just knew something was wrong i went to his apartment and found him dead. He had relapsed and died of a drugs overdose. I had tried to look out for him and it breaks my heart that i wasnt there for him
his loving dad richard
paul was 35
