I would like to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. Death is one of the most difficult things we face but may it comfort you to know that others care. I have found great encouragement when reading the beautiful words penned in the Bible at Isaiah 25:8 " He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces." May this promise also comfort you in this difficult time.

Paula was a dear friend during the few years we were in contact. Our sons were similar in age, so we had that connection. We bred our dogs together at one point, and the stories she could tell based on that experience were hilarious. Always kind, considerate, and fun loving. I so enjoyed her spirit and love of life. There was no such thing as a dull moment. Although we lost contact when I moved away, I have such fond memories of her. She will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear of Paula's passing. Paula and Keith trusted me with their most precious possessions, Lori and Brian. Although we did not keep in touch, I often think about the time I spent with her and through her confidence and encouragement and treating me like a member of the family, I have the life I have today. She was a good listener, always positive and so much fun to be around. I will miss her but carry her spirit with me always. Eileen
