Such a sweet, sweet lady.

She will be so missed by all. I will never forget her sitting in her recliner doing her favorite pass time crossword puzzles watching Wheel of Fortune.

She could certainly make a delicious Meat Loaf!

Her love of family and friends was endless.

When I had my first baby, illness of my husband made it unhealthy for me and Kimberly to go home. Paula offered her home for me and a newborn to come and stay.

I slept on the couch due to surgery from giving birth and Paula decided to get a drawer from the chest and line it with a pillow. Kim's first night was at Paula's home laying in a chest drawer.

I remember friends coming over to see us, some of which Paula really didn't know and she was so welcoming to everyone.

Paula-Poo has certainly earned her wings. Fly high sweet lady. Give a kiss to Danny and Kenny. I know you are wrapping your arms around your sons and Bucky who you have missed so very much!

Much love to the family and all extended family who mourn Paula's death. She is home, healthy and happy! X0X0
