Paula was my sister, just two years older than me. She left home to join the Navy and see the world. She found her world in her husband John and daughter Nikki. I am so proud to be family with them, and so grateful to John for his faithful love and care for her through their life together.

Paula was my middle sister, in a family of 5 kids from Ohio. She left Ohio many years ago for the Navy, where she met and married John, who was the love of her life. We will miss Paula with all our hearts. Our love and sympathy go out to John and Nikki and her family. And thank you, John, for taking such great and compassionate care of Paula, especially in her last few months. May God bless you always.
