I'll bet Scrump was joining in too Steve, with a big smile.

Thank you for letting us all know how things went and much love to Paul's family. They can see how he inspired so many people, and how he's still inspiring people, because of his love for the music.

I just noticed this thread.
Very sad news to read.
My deep sympathy to all his family and friends.
I was just thinking of him the other day when Scrump
was a word on a word play radio show of obscure definitions.

I am so sorry to hear of this sudden loss. Very tragic.

I send my condolences.

I never met Scrump but I've followed this thread and it is a wonderful epitaph for his family to have.

I guess that the whole 'celestial folk club' was crying yesterday.
Talk about rain!

El Greko and I attended Paul's funeral yesterday, along with many of Paul's musical friends. Of course it was a very sad occasion, but the minister who conducted the service, Frankie, and Alan, who paid a very fitting tribute, made sure it was a celebration of Paul's life and legacy rather than just a mourning of his passing. The words that were read by the minister on Frankie's behalf were both moving and uplifting, and brought a tear the the corner of this old folkie's eye. We left the chapel to the strains of Harvey Andrews' "Folk Club in the Sky"!

Afterwards we retired to the Orange Tree, which is the venue for the Baldock Folk Club, to raise a glass of Paul's favourite to his memory, and sing some songs in his honour. Despite her obvoius grief, Frankie was dignified and gracious throughout, and appeared to very much appriciate the musical contribution, knowing as she does, what an important part of Paul's life it was.

Frankie told me that she had read, when her mood allowed, all the messages of love and good wishes on this and other forums, following the accident, and the subsequent condolences, and expressed her gratitude to all concerned.

The attached was posted on the Midnight Voices forum (Pete Atkin's fan club) by Heather, Paul's sister...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I joined MV last night to express my sincere thanks for your wonderful sentiments on my brother, Paul Gunningham.

I was surfing for information on my brother as a way to help me grieve through the process. I last saw Paul and Frankie in October in London and we both all met in a pub with our adult sons. He was a modest, talented individual with a brilliant mind who loved his family, music, travel, meeting people, and computing development - but his passion was always music.

Even as a teenager he played harmonica, keyboards, and guitar. He was also a brilliant cartoonist. It was a terrible shock to hear of the dreadful car accident that took him away from his family - he struggled to live for 10 weeks, visited daily by Frankie. I last saw him in April, just three weeks after the accident.

The person who caused the accident when P&F were on their way to fly out for a vacation, has since gone underground and the police haven't been able to arrest him. The man had no legal papers on him and he drove right into Paul.

I was touched by the song written to Paul by George P. Thank you all for your kind messages, I have printed copies to give to his parents who have no Internet access.

I first met Paul through his Scrumpy and Western web site. We corresponded a number of times. I never made the connection with "Scrump" until news of his accident hit the 'Cat. He was a pleasant and knowledgeable man who went out of his way to help me as I tried to find out more about the various people on his web page and was nice enough to include mention of me and my radio show on his site.
I read his posts without knowing who he was, but in rereading some of them I find the same qualities I had discovered in the personal correspondance.
To his family and friends I extend my condolences. Even at long distance and through cyberspace Paul was a fine man. I am sorry to see him go; I am blessed to have had some connection to him.

Just got back from holiday. Moses broke the sad news to me while I was away.

Although I had only fairly recently actually met Paul in the flesh, I can say that he was every bit as warm and witty a person face to face as you would have expected from his posts here. He was one of those people who once you've met them, you feel you've known them all your life. I will certainly remember him for the rest of mine.

My thoughts are with all who knew him better than I did, especially Alan and Sue, and of course Frankie and Harry.
