Dear Helen and family:

Please accept our condolences on Uncle Paul's death. Uncle Paul was always there for my mother. He also spent a lot of time with his other relatives. I was often told as a child that I took after Uncle Paul, and I think that it was true, but he was a better story-teller and funnier. We will miss Uncle Paul.

Mike Buttermann and family

Thanks Hogie for being the best husband, best father to his children and the best brother in law to all of us. Always the first to be there for all our plumbing problems and anything else we needed. To know Paul was to Love him. We will miss him so much, but happy that now he can breath and is at peace with our Savior.

Leigh Ann, Glenda and Family, I was so sorry to hear of your dads passing. I always liked him and thought he was so funny. He would always speak to me when he came to pay his water bill and always smiling. He was a wonderful person and will be missed by many.
