Paul & Sue, We are so sorry for your loss. Jon Paul was an AMAZING guy who would give the shirt off his back to a stranger. He was the most down to earth country boy I knew. Tractor pulls just won't be the same without him there. If you need anything at all just let us know. With all our love, Nathan & Ashley

If tears could build a stairway If tears could build a stairway and thoughts a memory lane I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again No Farewell words were spoken No time to say good-bye You were gone before I knew it And only God knows why.- My heart's still active in sadness And secret tears still flow What it meant to lose you No one can ever know. But now I know you want us To mourn for you no more To remember all the happy times Life still has much in store.- Since you'll never be forgotten I pledge to you today A hallowed place within my heart Is where you'll always stay. - God knows why, with chilling touch, Death gathers those we love so much, And what now seems so strange and dim, Will all be clear, when we meet Him. You all are in my thoughts in prayers. I Love you!
