  • Paula and I were able to cram 50 years of missing each other into 3 years of the best time of all. I love you and miss you everyday. I’m not really crying, but my eyes keep on leaking. I’m grateful for the time we got together. You were a good big sister (even if I looked like a giant next to your munchkin self) and I will misbehave in your memory this summer since we won’t get to do it together. Let me know what your tattoo would have been. Carolyn

  • Paula was a true friend of mine for over 50 years, she was truly one of a kind, I will miss her like crazy. The only relief is knowing she’s no longer in pain,and she’s with her Dad once more.

    RIP Paula
