I worked at Avita in Wells Maine as a server from the kitchen and had the pleasure of her company many times in her Summer neighborhood. I was usually greeted with a beautiful Smile and she would always say hello. I have been blessed to have met her and will always remember her talking French to me with a big smile on her face. She loved the wonderful desserts our wonderful Chef Traci A, made for her she loved her sweets and Traci A, knew just how to make them special. Thank you for letting me put a memory. She will always be in my Heart. Lorraine Randall

To Paula's children, grandchildren, siblings and extended family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time. Paula was a cousin (one of many from the Guite clan) and I cherish the memories of she and Jimmy who are together again. The Bujolds were a close family and boy could they have a good time...even if it was at a funeral. Hold those memories dear to your hearts. That is how she will always be with you.
