Paula was my dear neighbor for many years. I remember at Christmas she would try to sneak a handwritten card and usually an ornament into my mailbox. Sometimes, she would include some chocolates! I am so sorry to hear of her passing , and I pray that your hearts would be comforted during this difficult time . It seems that Paula lived a good long life and was a wonderful person blessing all those who knew her. She certainly was a bright and wonderful person in my life. I pray the family is filled with peace and remembers all the good memories of her life. May God strengthen you all during this difficult time.
