    I was very happy my brother found such a kind and caring person as Paula in this life. I know she enriched the lives of those around her and she will be missed. She also had a great sense of humor.

    One of the "kindest" persons I had ever met..........Had many conversations with her over the past few years, and always felt "warm" after talking with her. Will be missed - for sure!!!

    My thoughts and prayers are with Paula's family during this difficult time. I had the privilege of getting to know Paula four years ago when starting real estate. She was the very first person I talked with as a nervous newby in the field, and she was a great mentor and friend to me through the years. She will be sadly missed.

    Very sorry for your loss. I had worked with Paula a couple of times on real estate transactions including a home next to hers in Port Matilda. Very sad news. Denise Wood
