I will also be your "brat". You will always have a big part of my heart. You taught me so much. Cooking, driving, music, how to be a great mom, and so much more. I will always cherish our times together with Alaina at the park, shopping, making dinner together. I will forever hold these memories deep in my heart. I love you forever and always.

To My Lovely Daughter,  You were always my little angel and always will be.  I love you so, so much and it hurts so badly that you were taken from me, your kids and granddaughter, the rest of your family and friends so soon.  You were always smiling even though bad times you kept my heart going each and every day rather I saw you that day or not. Just knowing I could pick up the phone and call you and you were there. It is so hard to go on but I will be alright because you want me too be.  Fly High Baby Girl and Rest In Peace.  Forever grateful i was given a wonderful daughter.  Love you always and forever. Until we meet again.   Mom

My deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother, daughter, granddaughter and family member. Paula was my daughter-in-law and sadly was taken far too soon from us. She gave me three beautiful grandchildren Jimmy, Jessica and Lizzie who will miss her always. Rest in peace Paula. You will be missed and always in my thoughts.Elizabeth (Betyann) Hildebrand

I do not pretend to understand. I do know that I was always so happy to call you my Niece. You have been in our family for such a long time that I do not know what it feels like not having you with us, until now. I enjoyed times we spent together, our long talks and sharing girl stuff. I can only pray that you are at peace. Please know that you are loved and  missed dearly.

Thank you for giving me such beautiful, smart and kind  great Nieces and a great Nephew. 

Love you and miss you girl!

Aunt Ann
