Paula was always so friendly and out going with everyone, and never complained, but always had a great sense of humor. Always enjoyed seeing her and talking to her. So very sorry for the entire families loss.
She was a wonderful person!! She helped me and many others when they needed it!! She was funny and smart!! I remember sitting at her house and her coming in and telling Missy and I her stories about her night out!! Going to miss those talks so much!! Love and miss you Momma Paula!!
Paula had a great sense of humor May her children tell stories to one another and remember her laugh.
Too many to tell.... Wouldn't know where to begin... She was the best aunt and friend anyone could ask for.
