Wherever you are Paul, just know that we will ALWAYS miss you, no matter how much time passes.

It's true, time does heal. The deep hurt from just a few years ago has given way to a greater sense of acceptance.

Thank goodness we can listen to your voice whenever we want and watch footage of your endless memorable antics.

Of course, we can only imagine what your family and friends are probably still going through. My thoughts are especially with Sunday, Olive and your immediate family. I only hope that the girls grow up realising what an amazing and talented man their father was...

We love you Hessie, we really miss you but we will never, ever forget you. I promise.

I put on the Sydney Farewell to the World concert tonight, completely out of the blue, just wanted to hear the music, and immediately realised the month....the date...etc.

Have just had some tears watching/listening to Italian Plastic, how much fun was that, god he was brilliant!

At the same time began thinking, 3 years, far out, I am still crying, wondering about Sunday and Olive and hoping they are thriving and living life to the full, as only girls their age can!

Can't help but want to somehow wallow in the feelings I have right at this moment, but know I should pull my head in and stop it!!! Its been 3 years right???

I really do find it strange that I haven't thought specifically about Paul for ages, and it happened tonight, and then realised we are in this week......must be some kind of inbuilt grief system!

Anyway, the DVD is now playing in the background...Fingers of Love, and I love you Paul forever, your memory and the joy that brings, and most of all I hope those closest are OK, the girls, Mardi, the rest of the family, the friends, and all the people who are now feeling your loss 3 years on. Could be 3 days for the emotions still felt. xxxxx

I think it's natural to wallow a bit regardless of how much time has passed; and particularly with that DVD on...music has a way of unleashing emotions.

Beautifully stated, Kylie.
Funny how some days are for rememberance. Started the day with dropping a bleedin bongo drum on my middle toe, its a nice shade of dark purple now. Grrrrrrrr

Met Mum and Dad for breakfast, Mum showed me photos, she'd just recieved, of her father she never knew, and I laid eyes on a grandfather I'd never met. Got to scanning the pics, and emailing them off to siblings. Then, out of the blue, the daughter wants to look at some old photos. Came across a cd of her Grandmother who'd passed away, 5 years ago. The cd had never bleedin well played for me before, but today, it decided to work. So there we sat, watching Grandma on her last holiday touring NZ.
After that, came across the photos I took of Paul's last sunset. So here I am.

Its not with grief I sit and remember Paul, its the fun times and smiles he brought our way. Which is more than I can say, for the picture of that stranger, who's my grandfather.

The world spins round, the Enz are doing rehearsal in ChCh right about now, with a new drummer. Its been a weird day, and nowhere, near finished yet.

Enjoy life all, and take time to remember those gone. Best wishes to Paul's family and to frenz.
I never had the pleasure of seeing Paul live and I don't remember the day he died... because I'm only 15.

But, I've seen him on The Farewell To The World DVD many times now, and that's enough for me to figure out that live, he would have made the atmosphere ten times funnier.

He comes across as a barrel of laughs and a hell of a lot of fun!

I just wish I could have seen him live...

R.I.P Hessie, we all miss you more than you'll ever know.
