I got to first know Paulette during the old BCBS of VA days and continued to build not only a wonderful and memorable working relationship with her, but a lasting friendship as well. I will always remember her for her faithful love for everyone she ever met and got to know, as well as her compassion and love for animals, particularly dogs. Wishing you much peace Paulette, and your family much comfort!

I have know Paulette and Wayne since I was 16. They were a True Love couple! No matter how much time had passed from speaking to Paulette, we always picked up right where we left off. My daughter and Bobby grew up playing together at "Nanny's ". I love this family with all my heart and will miss my dear, sweet friend. If everyone in the world could have Paulette's positive outlook, the world would surly be a better place.
