Paula was like a sister to me in high school and Jr. College. We laughed together, cried together and sweat together as we worked incredibly hard to make sure the rifle line was the best it could possibly be. She will always have a special place in my heart.

What a precious soul she was. She had a smile that would not stop and her laugh was so captive. So helped me through some rough times. I wish I cloud be there for the family. God bless her children and my prayers are with you all.

Some of my greatest memories from college are the times I spent hanging out with Paula. She was beautiful and very sweet. Condolences to the family. May she Rest In Peace and she will never be forgotten. My life was more enriched by knowing her the short time I did. God bless all of her family.
