  1. Dennis Miller says:

    A poem written by Antonio Talbert is for you.

    Our earthly loss is always a heavenly gain
    Although our hearts hurt and mourn in humanly pain
    The fact still remains the same
    That Heaven Has Gained more Love
    To sprinkle down from above

    You were obviously loved by many – and will be missed, but never forgotten.

    Love you sis.

    Wishing you You Peace in God’s Promise
    I will turn their mourning into joy, I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow. Jeremiah 31:13

    May you be comforted by faith that the Lord has brought that special person you have lost to a beautiful place of everlasting light and love.

    Jennifer Wilson

    I am just so saddened Paula that you had to leave us so early in life. I will never forget that beautiful “exhilarating” smile of yours from the time you were just a little girl. You and Dennis both were blessed with those beautiful smiles.. You were also blessed with not only your smile, but a wonderful sense of humor. You always found some way to find some humor in whatever we were discussing; no matter how serious the conversation may have been. I’m so happy that you were able to make the trip to FL when you did, and I will always cherish the Rosary you sent to me from your trip to Israel. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. On that note, I want to leave your family with this poem:


    The brightness of the past is never lost;
    Memory brings it back, and contemplation brings it near again;
    Some may deny the virtues of sentiment;
    But you will not find me among them.
    There is too much of the past that I do not wish to forget.

    With Love and Sympathy,
    Aunt Therese
