I have created the tribute page to Paul on our wiki at:

Those of you who are more talented than I can make it
look nicer, but I would ask that you all add the sentiments
that you have expressed here in these posts to these mailing
lists on that wiki page so that Paul's family can have
a lasting memory of Paul and his time at OWASP. Please
try to be positive, remembering that we are doing this
to help his family during a difficult time.

Thanks in advance and RIP, Paul.
