Bernie, Mike and Jake, We are without words to express our feelings for the loss of your beautiful Wife and mother. This all happened so fast and no one will know the reasoning behind it all as to why she was taken from us all so very young. We will miss her deeply and cherish all the wonderful memories we have had with her at all the family gatherings, camp, graduations, weddings etc. She was the expert at party planning and no one ever went away hungry from anything she ever hosted. Paula was a great listener and at giving advice and I will miss our little chats. Her smile was very contagious and I will always remember her in that way, SMILING... May you soar with the eagles Paula and be our guardian Angel above to watch over us below. Until we all meet again. Say hello to Mom and let her know we miss her too. We love you, God Bless....your family in Pennsylvania. Cecelia, Roger, Grumpy (Ed), Brian, Connie, Logan, Brayden, Michael, Adrianne and little Anna Marie.
