I am sorry this is belated. However, we were both to upset with both deaths. We loved both of them and our time in pharmacy school and MH.
To my dear, dear friend, Dawn! I am in a state of shock as I found this obituary while trying to find a way to get in touch with Darren! I just talked to Hera couple of weeks ago when she called about Paul! My thoughts and prayers are with the family! Darren or Nan Ellen please give me a call sometime!
Darren, I'm so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. When my sister told me I was shocked by the news. Your mom and dad have reunited in heaven as they were on earth. May Gods hands lift you and your family and carry you in the days ahead.
2022 has been such a hard year for the Trammell and Magness family. First Doedy, then Paul just a week ago and now sweet Dawn. It has been a lot of loss in a very short period of time. I have so many memories of wonderful times with Dawn. Our trip to Colorado where we laughed and made some priceless memories. The funny comments that would just pop out of her mouth at the most unexpected times and crack us all up. Dawn being the perfect hostess for family gatherings. The two of us escaping to the movies and taking photos wearing our huge 3D glasses while striking goofy poses. Such little things that meant so much. Dawn, you will be dearly missed. ðŸ™â¤ï¸
Paul and Dawn were our great friends, and we will miss them both. Paul and Mike grew up together and were best buddies from grade school through college.
So sorry to learn about Paul and Dawnâ€™s passing. Our family has a long history with the Trammell family and Mountain Home. Sending love and prayers to the family.
To all of Dawn and Paul's family, I extend my sincere condolences for your loss.
May Dawn rest in peace. Sending prayers and comfort your way. With deepest sympathy,Mike and Dianna Roller
A person who watched over every one and me. Her and Paul always have the highest complements to me and about me. We always kept in touch at least once a month. I will miss her dearly. But she is smiling highly with Paul . She will be my guardian angel. God bless
Sweet, pretty Dawn. My friend and classmate. I love you, lady. My condolences to her family. Dawn and Paul forever reunited.
Oh, my dear, Dawn, I am sad to learn of your passing. And I had no idea that Paul just died a few days ago until I came to this page to leave a sympathy note. I have not doubt that you two are dancing together in Heaven. Thank you for always providing a reason for me to smile whenever we had the chance to visit. The world is a better place for both of you having been in it. God bless!
I knew she and Paul wouldnâ€™t be apart long - they were loving and faithful partners in this life - and now for eternity. But weâ€™ll miss themâ€¦
Allison and family I'm so sorry for your loss I thought the world of both your mom and dad. All my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Wanda Evans
We are praying for all of yâ€™all during this extremely difficult time & love each of you.
Condolences to all the family. So sorry you have to deal with losing them both in such a short time. At least they are once again together.
May God be with the family. Dawn and Paul were our friends along with the others in the family.
To be reunited with Paul will be glorious. Rest well beautiful one. Helen
