Paul White 2nd Dan R.I.P

Paul was a very active member of GTJJK. His personality will live forever in our hearts. After battling cancer, Paul finally passed away on Friday 23rd January 2009.

 

We had hoped to be able to send him and his children on a last holiday, unfortunatley Paul will not be accompanying his family, but thanks to all of you his children will be able to enjoy this holiday of a lifetime and hopefully help them in their grief for a great loved and respected Dad.
