My friend Paula didn't die, she graduated to the beautiful Beaulah Land we are promised when we love and obey our Father. She joined her mother, father, sister Gayle, and beloved nephew Zachary. Though I will miss her so much, I am glad to see her arrived safe with our Lord. Fly high my precious sister. I love you forever and always.
