    Paula. I love you so much and I sorry that I didn’t tell you more than I did. You and Pam were always more like a sister to me than a cousin. You were a great lady and a Great Grandmother and you will be missed terribly. I know that there is one more angel in Heaven watching over me now and I will see you again. My deepest sympathy goes out to your entire family I love you all

    I am so sorry for the loss of Paula. When I think of Paula, I think of a comedian , she made you laugh and at times,cry. I worked for a number of years with Paula and there was never a dull moment. I miss you, I love you. May the Lord bring peace to Gary and the rest of the family. “GO REST HIGH UPON THAT MOUNTAIN, GIRL YOUR WORK ON EARTH IS ENDED, SO REST HIGH UPON THAT MOUNTAIN, FOR THE FATHER AND THE SON.”

    Helen and Pam, I am so sorry to hear about Paula. We just found out. We know Charlie is looking after her now. If there is anything we can do, you have Billy’s number, let us know. We’ll keep you all in our prayers.
    P.S. Pam, Billy says if you just need to talk, just call him any time.

    Love to you all, Billy and Sandra

    Chera & Family, Kristen & I are so very sorry to learn of your Mom’s passing. I recall she always had a smile on her face, no matter how she was feeling. She is free from all her pain & suffering. But, doesn’t help the ones left behind. We love you guys & praying God will wrap his loving arms around you & comfort you during this most difficult time.

    Chera, I am very sorry you lost your mother and my neice. Honey please try and understand life is a gift and sometimes so is death. Take care of yourself and always remember your mother, the way she was. A very, very good person who love you very much and still does.
    May God help you through this trying time. Your mother is at a place where her chronic and severe pain no longer exist. Always remember you took up a very large part of her heart with the undying love she had for you. God bless you Chera and your family. You are and have always been a very sweet person.
