“And I think, oh my God, he was such a busy person, who always made time for people.”
The former magician’s assistant recalled a moment a fan revealed the way her late husband had boosted her confidence – much to her surprise.
She recalled: “A girl came up to me about two years ago and said, ‘I met Paul after a show and asked for an autograph with my family when I was about 14.
“’And I’m very tall and I always walked hunched over – I was very embarrassed about it. And when he was signing my autograph book he said to me, ‘You’re a tall good looking girl. Stand up straight and be proud of it’”.
Debbie went on: “Those little tales of kindness – him giving his time to people. He never told me about.”
