Bernard and Ms. Paula were colleagues and great friends at Macy's for 20 years or so. Even after Ms. Paula retired, we remained in close contact with her. When we took her out to lunch or to visit at hone, we asked for her food preference, and she replied with a laugh: "I eat anything and everything, At my age, Id on't worry anymore what is good or bad to eat. Just surprise me!". And we did!
Sonia, Werner and Erich (and your families), please know that even though Ms. Paula has left, many parts of her remained with you all and with her friends. Even though she is far in distance, she is very close in spirit. Additionally, believe, that no matter where she may roam, the Good and Loving Lord will always taker her "Safely Home".
With love and prayers,
Bernard and Lourella
