I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Paula and Bob. Paula and I had such a nice conversation at the reunion two years ago. My condolences to their family and friends. It is hard to lose such nice people.

Sure am sorry to learn of the loss of Paula.  She was my first real date.  A smart, wonderful  and warm person whom I always had a lot of respect for. Bless you Paula and your family.

l can remember what a gentle heart she had. I don't quite remember the exact reason why we were there; but we had gone to see the Eddie Duchin story, and with him dying at the end, she broke down and cried while I fought back the tears

Paula was one of the nicest people I have ever known. She was a genuinely beautiful friend years ago and after touching base again in our 50's, she was still that beautiful, loyal person I knew starting in the sixth grade at Tecumseh through our junior year in high school. I am going to miss her friendship although we were hundreds of miles apart. Her soft voice and kind thoughts are something I will always remember.  May God keep you close, Paula. 
 So sorry to hear of Bob's death so quickly after Paula's. They were diffently joined together in life and death.
May the family rejoice in their love for one another.
