My tribute poem paul o'grady
You gave this nation some wonderful memories and laughter long the way. I am in complete shock that you left this world so soon I would like to pass on my condolences to your family and friends at this difficult time. It’s a crying shame but you showed us with your warmth and laughter and your warm and smiles to our faces you have also left a huge void in the entertainment world now you are a star who will keep shining star rip  paul o'grady

    A lovely tribute @Globster

    I was glad at least that he passed away peacefully with family, but shocked as it was so unexpected. It's definitely left a void in the entertainment world!

    I keep hoping this is all a nightmare - not only a great entertainer but also a wonderful human for people (particularly children) and dogs  :( Someone for all of us to look up to, that's for sure  <3
