Paula was a very knowledgeable, professional and caring nurse who I had the privilege to work with at Dayton Center for Neurological Disorders. Not only was she a fellow nurse that I always held in great esteem, but she also became a most cherished friend. Through the years I appreciated her dry sense of humor and her ability to make us all laugh until we cried. I know the last several years were very difficult due to illness,but with her loving husband by her side and her beautiful daughter's love she fought for life. She adored her grandchildren and we shared many grandma moments together. I will miss her with all my heart and cherish her friendship for as long as I live. Love You Paula'

I met my sweet friend, Paula on Twitter years ago. We shared many things & I felt like I had always known her. We sent cards & gifts over the years & I treasure every one, especially the lovely angel figurines. You were always my angel friend & now you live in my heart. Love you my precious friend. ❤️

Paula and I met on Twitter and YouTube several years ago. She was such a dear friend to me. I had made a Christmas ornament for myself and her and she had sent me 2 gingerbread Christmas trees. Every time I look at those I will be reminded of my dear friend who was taken too soon. I will miss you Paula. Rest easy my friend. I love you. 💛
