Paula was a sweet ,unassuming & kind lady. I can only imagine the deep loss her family feels. She always put a smile on her face no matter what might have been going on in her life. Thanks Paula for being a great friend to our Mom Marcy,
And our prayers will be for your sweet Momma & all the family..

I sure enjoyed my visits with Paula when she was sewing our shirts for Tractors. She always took the time to visit and told me stories about her grand babies. God has definitely gained a sweet angel. Prayers of peace and comfort to her family.

Paula was an instrumental influence in my life and the lives of my children. She was a true example of a beautiful Christian women. The world will be less one special women however, heaven will be blessed with a special angel! I can see her in heaven helping all the little children there. My love goes out to her family as I know she will be greatly missed....
