I had the very great privilege of Paula coming to work with me as an associate broker at Forestwood Realtors where she did an outstanding job for the many years we worked together.

Paula was the consummate professional in every way possible and was always achieving in everything she did.

Above and beyond her career she was always happy, upbeat, and cheerful to everyone she met. Her smile and kind words were infectious to all who knew her.

Her family meant everything to her and she worked hard to see they had everything they needed.

Thanks, Paula, for sharing your life with Nyona and myself. You really did make a difference for us.

Paula was always easy to talk to. She could even make you feel like an adopted grandchild. The last time I saw her. We got to catch up and she got to meet my daughter. She kept insisting that I put her in pageants. Which I did. She was the one that made my decision for her to do it. Paula was always a sweet and loving women. My heart goes out to my extended family and my little cousin. May you always feel her warm love around you. Love yall

I had my very first super bowl party at her house. I didn't watch watch any the game but she was the best hostess. We talked and laughed through watching the football fanatics responses to the plays.
