Paula was like a second mother to me and my siblings since the day we were born. In fact, Paula and Jeff took me and my whole family in when my parents were building their house and had no place to stay. Paula was family and loved her family dearly. She always made us laugh and was good for speaking the truths...if you liked it or jot, she was gonna tell you but mean nothing but LOVE. She was an incredible woman!! My heart aches deeply and I could never forget her. Love you Mama Paula
