    My deepest sympathy for the loss of Paula. Even though we were cousins, we didn't get to see each other very often. God promised He would be with us when we hurt, I know the family is hurting now, so just trust Him to help you through this difficult time and the healing process. Love to All.N

    I never really got to know Paula as a little girl, but remember her from all the beautiful things that were said about her. I know death of a loved one can leave a big hole in your heart which can never be filled, just learned to live on. Thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. Love to each one of you.
