Paula was dear friend. My family and I moved to Wichita during the middle of our Sophomore year of high school, which was a hard move for a teenager. Paula made me feel welcome. She also encourage me to attended the University of Kansas. We were roommates our Freshmen year of college. There were a lot of wonderful memories we shared together as friends. One we still laughed about to this day, was our spontaneous road trip to Dallas to watch our favorite basketball team (The Jayhawks) play in the final four. She went home to Wichita that weekend, and told me if I decide to go to Dallas to pick her up. I told her I would not be going; well that was until, I received a call from some other friends of ours, who convinced me we needed to take a road trip. Of course I called Paula, she was out, so I spoke to her Mother. I told her we were coming to get Paula to go to Dallas. Keep in mind this was about 11:00 pm on a Friday night. We got to it Wichita about 2:30 am Saturday. Paula was ready, her Mom feed us, and we were on the road. We had the best time; very little money, nor arrangements of place to sleep while in Dallas. Paula reached out to a church camp friend, who parents allowed us to stay at their house. This trip was completely out of the norm, Paula is a planner and very organized, which I think is why we had such a good time, we just let life happen. Paula will be deeply missed on earth, she is a sweet kind person who was always willing to help others, and a fabulous cook.

The first time I met Paula was at my wedding in Yosemite National Park in 1997. I didn't know it until after the ceremony that Paula helped my friends decorate Yosemite Chapel with my delivered flowers. Apparently the florist just dropped them off and left. She wasn't part of the family yet, but she seemed liked she belonged. She was always great at organizing social gatherings, especially Thanksgiving. It is very sad she was only here for such a short time. She will be missed.
