Steve, Brent and Standtke family

We send our condolences and love during this time of grief but know you will celebrate Paula's life with fond and special memories. We cherish many memories from when we all met at Kirby Kiddie Kare. Our son's becoming friends allowed us all to become friends. Even when we moved to IL we kept in touch and got together on some vacations in Branson Missouri. What fun those trips were. We will miss Paula but she will forever be in our hearts and memories and never forgotten. Love to you all
Myra Tom, Brandon Shannon Britt Michael and Mya Poulk
