Bill, John, Ann, Rick and families. We are so sorry for your loss. There are many memories of Paula and the old neighborhood. I remember watching Batman in COLOR at the Balfours. First color TV on the block and it was Batman. Paula was right there with all of us kids. I remember her with the biggest smile as she was holding the door open for all of us to go in. Out at the lake there were good times and she always had that smile. So many memories that I will hold dear forever. To all of you-remember the memories. Thoughts and prayers are with you.
