    Please accept my very heartfelt sympathy in your loss of such a sweet kind beautiful person. Her pretty smile is what I remember most and that it was always genuinely shared with all. I am truly saddened to hear she has passed. My prayers to all of her family and loved ones.

    I worked with Paula in Gulfport. She and I became fast friends and I loved her dearly. She always made my day and had only positive things to say. She stood by my side when things got tough and she had the kindest heart. She and I were both single mothers with kids the same age so we had a lot in common. She talked about Chad all the time and was so proud of him. I know she loved her family dearly and missed them so much while in Tn. Prayers for all of you. Remember the good times and know that you all are not alone. Miss Paula so much already.

    Words are so hard to come by…This has really broken my heart..she was full of spirit, joy, laughter and always had time for all. Her life with us was short but her memories will live on. To the family her mom and sister and brother & son let God heal your broken hearts, he will guide you and comfort you. I pray that you pull together and help each other. So very sorry for your painful loss of Paula…

    Paula has been a dear friend to me for over 20 years. Our boys started playing baseball together when they were five years old. We worked together for many years, went to church together and had too much fun on the road trips we took. We made alot of memories and I will cherish each and every one of them. Heaven received another beautiful angel.

    I went to school with Paula. Here, back in Tioga Louisiana,
    We are all mourning the loss of our ” Tioga Classmate and Friend ” as a whole…Paula touched our lives while we were at an age of innocence. She left us just as she had found us…. With courage and spirit! Many prayers being offered up to The Lord for Paula’s Family. Rest assure, Heaven has been rejoicing over the Angel that has come home…

    I enjoyed getting to know Paula and working with her at TriStar Skyline Medical Center. She was always a professional and willing to help others. I’m so sorry her light went out way too soon, but she will always be remembered in our hearts. My thoughts and prayers go out to Paula’s family.
