I was a student in Mrs. Paulk's third grade class back in 1996 (I believe). As I'm sitting here studying for finals, she came to mind out of the blue. I had no idea that she had passed, and it fills me with such sorrow to find this out now. The fact that I thought of her some eighteen years later indicates the impact she had on my life. She was easily the best teacher I've ever had. She touched so many students' lives and had a true passion for teaching. I feel so blessed to have known such a wonderful woman. My prayers go out to her family.

Dear George and Family,
Stan and I were saddened to hear of Mary's sudden passing. She is one of the reasons that I am now teaching. I believe that I was in her very first class at Alpharetta ES. I don't remember the occasion, but sometime near the end of the year you came to our classroom and Mary introduced you to us as her fiance. I can remember all us girls gathering around her on the playground, and she never ran us off. She was so kind and genuinely interested in each of our lives and we reveled in that attention! You and Mary photographed many occasions for Stan and I through our high school dating years and then our wedding. That was 30 years ago this past October! May you find comfort in all the warm memories of Mary and her wide influence. You all will be in our prayers.
Blessings,

Dear George, Crystal, Melody, and Family,

I have no words to express the sorrow I feel at the loss of Mary Nelle. I've known you all since you were in elementary school, at church and at work. She was such a loving and caring person who embraced each day with love for all her students and co-workers. She cherished her family and her friends. Time will help you heal but until then, God has you all in his arms holding you with steadfast love and comfort.
With much love and sympathy, Leslie & Rick Townsend

George, Crystal, Melody and Family,
I can't remember a time that I spent with Mary that wasn't pleasant. We both grew up in small communities in South Georgia so maybe that was it...but I believe it was her caring and loving soul.
Please know my love and prayers are with you, Mary Mills

Dear Paulk Family, While we have never met,I did come to know each of you through Mary Nelle's eyes. Every word she spoke about George, Melody and Crystal were with love and true pride in her family. She was an inspiration who created a legacy that will never be forgotten. From her own children to my children (both of mine had her in 3rd grade), to all she taught and encountered, she instilled a lasting memory. My children now 27 and 24 were so sad to hear of her passing, and they recalled “Sideways Stories from Wayside School”, another book she would share with her class.They knew her as being a teacher who touched their lives. She loved her dear family and she knew her family loved her.I feel so blessed to have known Mary Nelle Paulk. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Dear George, Crystal, and Melody,
I am so very sad to learn of Mary passing away. She welcomed me with open arms to Alpharetta Elementary when I was a new teacher. We both taught 3rd grade (I taught Crystal :)) and she not only was a great mentor but a great friend also. She was so very kind and so lovely to everyone she came across. Please know that you are all in my prayers.
Love, Jean Jordan Whiteside

You were such a special teacher, i think I had her the first year she was at Alph elem. I was often picked on in school, because i had an artificial eye. But she made me feel so special, even had me and my best friend, come home with her and spend the night at their house on lake lanier. Later on George and her, did my wedding pictures. I wish there were more teachers like her. She made such a difference in my life and I sure many more.

To all of Mary Nelle"s family, my heart goes out to you. Her love for her family was evident in all I saw of her. What impressed me about Mary Nelle was she was a strong independent woman who was always trying to organize everything. She wanted to please everyone around her and keep "Peace" wherever she could. Our lives will forever be a little darker, but Heaven is a little lighter.
