    You have my deepest condolences. I had the opportunity to know Paula throughout high school and would see her out from time to time over the next 20 years. Though she liked to come off tough, I had the pleasure of getting to see her softer side that was really sweet & nice. I pray for your strength during this time and wish you remember all the best Paula had to offer us.

    I am writing for travis, her nephew he is so distraught he cant even put into words. I miss her beyond belief so i cant imagine how he feels. He talks about his Aunt Paula everyday and being her first nephew they were pretty close in age that he has endless stories that start growing up in her room when she was a teenager, watching her have her baby girl megan, and being there anytime she needed him. Her life may have been cut short, but we have been together twenty years and i dont think I have ever heard s repeat story. She was there through really tough times in his life and in return no matter when or what she needed he was there. I see his heart breaking, but trying not to let it show. I can see through that though and can see the pain he has to endure missing this woman so much. He hasnt been able to sleep, hasnt been able to eat, and I have never seen him cry as much as he has these passed days in twenty years. All I can say is Aunt Paula Travis is missing you and hopes one day to see you again. As for now this pain will take so long to pass. I do think whats happening is easier for him to understand than what is going on with everyone still living and that death may be easier to understand than this life we all live and trying to understand , well right now basically everything left going on around him and why? We all live the same life just all follow different paths and only you Aunt Paula know the true bond you and him have. I can say I was lucky enough to see and hear it myself.

    Aunt Anna, Jody, Linda and Vern..I was so very sorry to hear about Paula, she was always there for me when we were growing up, I’m sorry that we lost contact through the years. We had a lot of great times in school, and am sure her memory lives on there. You all have my deepest sympathies in this terribly trying time. Would also like to thank Linda for keeping me updated on everything. I know she had a lot going on and I appreciated the time and effort that it took. Love and miss you all. May Paula now RIP .
