We are all missing our friend and brother Paul today. There have been many special memories shared these last few days about Paul but one word keeps coming up and that is "Unique". I can't think of a better compliment to give someone.
Paul liked to do things his way and any time one of us questioned it we just paused and said, "well thats just Paul", and we wouldn't have wanted him any other way.
Somewhere in the universe Paul is looking down on us smiling and probably reciting a line from Monty Python to fit this occasion.
You will be missed my friend.

I was friends with Paul in public school. He was so kind and nice. He would always stick-up for me outside in the playground.
I played baseball with Paul, Richard and the Skinners, Kevin Smith
and lot others great friends for St. Theodore’s Anglican Church Baseball Team for 4 years.
We won each year with a “Amazing” Team like that!!
I remember playing at Goulding Park, when Gary Skinner, Richard and Paul went up to bat all they wanted to do was to see who could “Hit” the first “Parked” Car on the street with the softball.
Gary always could do it he crushed a lot of windshield each game.
Then “Richard” did it too, and then “Paul” almost made it out of the park but it always stop at sidewalk for some reason.
Thank God, we had a lot extra softballs each game.
Because we were all to scared to go get them off the road. In case the person who owned the car called the police on all of us!!
These where the best times of our lives!!
I went to Northview H.S.S., and so did Paul and his brother.
Paul was always playing jokes on everyone as he walked down the halls each day. Never a dull moment when “Paul” was around.
To Roy my friend, and Richard, Lori, and to the rest of the family and friends.
Sorry for your loss of Paul.
I hope you hold Paul’s memories close to your loving “Hearts” forever and always.
Paul thanks for being my friend. I will never forget you as long as I live.
Gone way to soon but will be never forgotten by so many of us!!
R.I.P my friend in up in heaven in God’s loving arms, and with
your loving mother too.
Until we all meet again.

I met Paul Tillotson as a tiny baby being pushed in his huge old fashioned pram around our neighbourhood by his beaming father. I was 8 years old and of course, I thought he was the most beautiful little doll I had ever seen. But, those 8 years meant I was always the "big kid" and he was the "little kid." I think my first babysitting gig was with the Tillotson kids. I don't think it went particularly well - but I don't recall that Paul was the problem. It's hard to believe, when you're the big kid, that the little kid is no longer with us. My prayers go out to Roy and Lori and Rick and their families. This is a lot to take in. I take comfort in the belief that his mom is with him in heaven with her arms around him and her joy in her son will be shining from her. Joyce loved her children fiercely and I know she always had an extra soft spot for her youngest. May God Bless all the Tillotson family as they grieve the loss of Paul.
