I realy wish that I would have heard about you sooner. I only got to know you trough your friends, but I feel a great loss. You are sorely missed.
It is said that a person never truly dies as long as he is remembered, if so, you will live on for a long long time...

Farewell Zambora,

You have united a group of people and inspired them on a daily basis. You left your mark on many people's lives, and you will be fondly remembered by all.

May you rest in peace.

Paul (Zambora), I only knew you a short time on Hattrick, but your kindness and helpfulness to me will not be forgotten, nor will the gold that you posted on the forums. My thoughts are with your family. Rest in Peace my fellow FAFfer.

Paul (Zam), you were the glue you our madness! We, and I, will miss you more than you'll ever know. I can picture you now with chaos and mayhem, causing exactly that with your trusty cat by your side. May the M.E. in the sky look after you forevermore... Love Foxie

I only go to know you recently (through the online game Hattrick), but I am the richer for it.

I am confident that hundreds of other people from around the world feel the same way.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time.

We never met in real life Paul but I feel like I know you as one of my best friends. Long will be the memories of the good times we shared and long may you rest in peace.

My deepest sympathies are with your family at this time, and with your cat. To me you will always be Zambora and I will never forget.

Dear Paul, may your soul finally rest in peace. I miss you my friend. You will forever be with me. And I know I now have an angel in the sky looking over me, just like I had an angel on earth looking over me.

RIP Paul, it was an unmitigated delight to share time with you in cyberspace. You were a gentleman, a scholar, a fun-spirited & cat-loving soul who warmed many lives with your banter. You will be sorely missed and fondly regarded.

Always providing a chuckle, trying to keep everyones spirits high. Strange and quirky, but that's how we loved and will remember you.

You'll be sorely missed.

Dear Paul (aka Zambora online), you will be missed you crazy old coot. Your legacy (FAF) will live on, and your inane sense of humour will never be forgotten. I hope someone nice is taking care of your cat.
