John, Jennifer and family, I send my deepest condolences and prayers to you all. I will definitely miss seeing Paula at her dental appointments, it surely wasn't her favorite place to be but we always had a good time and great conversation. May God keep and comfort you during this time...xoxo

I am a cousin to Paula. My mom, Lucina, was a sister to her dad. I am so sorry for your loss. I have many good memories of gatherings at Grandma Kopp's house at Christmas and extended family celebrations with Uncle Paul and Aunt Mary Charles and all the kids.
My deepest sympathy and prayers.

Mr. Eads, Angela, and Jennifer,
I'm so sorry to learn of Mrs. Eads passing. I have so many fun memories of her and all of you when we would play at your house in grade school. I know she's with you every minute from above. Much love to all of you. Would so like to catch up with all of you when your hearts (and our world) allows. ❤
