Paul and I were work partners at J&J many, many years ago. He was a very hard worker and would always go the extra mile to make someone feel important. I am sorry for your loss.
Thinking of you all, Andrea Hanley

Paul was a sweet, loving man with special warmth and a sense of humor. I am grateful that I observed the love he shared with his beautiful wife, Heidi, my dear friend. I always enjoyed our time together!

The story of when Paul and Heidi met, to the way they spoke about and looked at one another, reminded me of a fairytale, a dream come true. You could feel their love, happiness, dedication, and caring for one another – and their family. Love and bonds like theirs are everlasting, transcend beyond the physical.

Much love to Heidi and the Buttiens family.
