    We were so saddened to hear of Paula’s death. We just saw her and the family about 2 months ago at Ray’s funeral.
    I have known Paula since she was a baby and used to babysit the Palermo kids-they lived across the street from us on Chandler Drive. Later on I was blessed to have taught them at Tioga Jr. High, watched them play ball at Ward 10 and see them grow into young adults. I feel like I have lost a little sister.
    Paula had that special little laugh…
    Please know that our prayers and thoughts are with Paula’s son, Melba, Jo, and Johnny.
