This morning when I was looking at what was happening in the news on stuff.co.nz, I came across this article http://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/news/9332900/Genius-lyricist-and-writer-Jenden-dies.
It was a very sad way to start the day.
Paul Jenden is the partner of Louis who teaches Salem contemporary dance.
Louis had said that Paul was very sick in hospital but we were all hoping for the best.
We had last seen Paul perform in the pantomime "Cinderella" at the Circa Theatre where he played Sven from Sweden. He was so funny and the panto was such fun.

His last production was "C- The Musical" based on his personal experience with cancer and Louis was part of the cast. Unfortunately we were not able to get to see it but have been told by friends that it was great.
Which he then followed by appearing in WOW before becoming ill.
A very creative, talented man.
Rest in Peace Paul.
