Paula was such a sweet sweet person... I'm so glad I got to look her in the eyes and say Hi...(at our last reunion)  not knowing that we would actually be saying good by. You are missed already. Thoughts and prayers for peace and comfort for her family and friends.

Paula was a lovely sweet person & very brave! We had connected in last few years because we both had had cancer journeys, but sadly hadn't communicated since last fall. Prayers for her family, she will be missed.

So very sad to lose our sweet Paula.  Our monthly luncheons will never be the same, but we will hold a place for her there and always in our hearts.
