  1. Tammy Butler

    Jeremy, so very sorry to hear about Paula. I know she has struggled for many years with various sickness. I last saw her at your wedding and she was beyond happy that night. I will never forget my time living with her over at the house on Poole Road or all the years growing up that I would come hang out with you 2 and Tommy at the Moore’s house. Keeping all of you in my prayers as I know she will be terribly missed. Granny adored her. See you Thursday. Tammy

  2. Erica

    I would like to express my deepest condolences to the family. She was obviously loved by all of you. Death is one of the hardest experiences in life. We all long for the time when we can say with confidence, “Death is swallowed up forever. Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:54,55)
