I an very saddened by the news of Paula's passing. I grew up next door to her and attend the same church for years. She always loved hearing my siblings, cousins, and I run around our grandparents yard. She would always let us come say hello and offer us a cookie. She was such a sweet and caring lady.

So sorry for your loss and she was a great lady and never lost her sense of humor through all the rough times.She tried to teach me german when I was with her and we went on quite a few outings together and she always said if she was a nuisance just drop her off somewhere and I told her I would but she would find her way back home and we had good laughs,it was hard just for the short time I took care of her to watch her changing but I would not trade it for the world.
