Rob, Nancy & Marissa,
I am keeping you all in my thoughts as well as the sweet fond memories of Paulette. As a young adult still living at home, I looked forward to the BBQ she sent to us at Christmas time. She was a wonderful lady that always thought of others and I am happy to know that my family was part of that group.

I don't know if you remember me Nancy, but i sat next to on the plane from detroit to evansville. I was the flight attendant that was going home and we talked the whole flight. I'm sad to have read that your mother has passed. I wanted to thank you for sharing your story with me. My prayers are with you and your family during this sad time.

Nancy, Rob, and Marissa,

I am sadden to hear about Paulette's passing. While living in Evansville as a young child, I loved when Paulette would come by for a visit. I thought it was so funny when she called my dad "Junior". When I would come back to Evansville to visit, I would make a point to stop and see Paulette. She would tell me stories about my grandfather whom I never met. I know that she still loved him after all these years. I will never forget all the wonderful things Paulette did for us as kids; and the times Leon would take us out for breakfast. Paulette is truly an awesome lady. We will keep you all in our prayers!
