I met Paula through the Dulcimer Gathering and playing at the Feast. She was always generous, loving and kind. I support a local food bank and will give a big bag of food and supplies to it in her name.

So very sorry to hear about this. I was a classmate of Paula's at Westfield High School. Last saw her at our 50th reunion in 2013. Sincere condolences to the family and friends. David Webster
