Paula Martin and l shared some adventurious years together at CNA! I had known her for over 40 years! Paula was a strong and skilled operator who voiced her opinion often; however, a heart of gold underneath that facad. Paula was very Inspirational and influential in educating my two daughters who were later diagnosed with MS; we are forever grateful!
To Jen: you have shown tremendous strength and courage and Paula would be so proud of you as I am too! Remember these words found in the Bible "Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted". Matthew 5:4 "So do not fear. For I am with you; do not be dismayed. For I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand". When all the dust has settled we will always be here for you. Tanya and Barbara

To Jenn Jenn & Family-
I can only empathize with the "parting " of a mother. However; I can sympathize with the pain, the loss, and yet the joyous memories, you have to carry you through. May you and the family find comfort in the "Arms of Jesus."

Love & Blessings,
Lindell (Co-Worker)
