Dear Judy, we were saddened to hear about Paul's passing but comforted to Know that his final destination was forever with our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Our time of membership at The Living Word Church (now The Oasis Church) was enhanced greatly by the love and compassion the two of you showed to so many. The Spirit of the Lord was most prominent when you shared your hugs and kind words with us. Thank you . We send our love to you and your family in this time of sorrow . May the Blessings of the Lord sustain you all.

I am so honored to have gotten to meet Uncle Paul at a visit they made down south. Though we only met once he and Judy are family. I know he ran his race for Jesus until his last breath and I am positive the Lord is well pleased in his servant.

Uncle Paul, We cannot even imagine how much you will be missed by so many. You leave such an amazing legacy for sharing Christ with others. It was a blessing to visit with you and Auntie Judy last Spring. Aunt Tina and I left feeling the true Spirit of a Christian home. The two of you have had a long marriage, which modeled the love of Christ, and what His unconditional love looks like for all of us to emulate. As a little girl, I will always cherish the memory of being there with you and Auntie Judy in Daytona, and your trips out in the ocean to fish, bringing back a shark for all of us to eat. A new experience! Auntie Judy, May God bless you with His strength and the comfort of the Holy Spirit in the coming days, weeks, months and years ahead. While this is a great loss for everyone, it is truly a far greater loss for you. May the love of family and friends support you, and be a part of your rock to move forward for Jesus. May the knowledge that Uncle Paul's loss is great here; his presence is great gain for Heaven. We will be praying for you, and hope to see you soon. Please know, you have a place to come to here in Florida, anytime, and hopefully soon. Love always, Leashia Nehemiah 8:10

What a wonderful godly man, I met Paul and Judy years ago as customers dining at the Hickory, It was no time and they were asking for me, then we exchanged numbers, and next thing you knew, We were lifetime friends, I have know them for many years, and have never met such loving, compassionate godly couple.
