    I will miss Paula. She was very kind to my husband and me when we saw her at school functions and parties for our shared Grandchildren, Madylin and Ryan. I especially am thankful for her rushing to the hospital to stay with Madylin while I stayed with Marti and Mike during the birth of Ryan. Such a sweet woman. She will be missed.
