I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I pray that God will bring you comfort in the days ahead. Paula was an amazing woman and I will forever be grateful that she took me to Sunday school and prayed with me when I asked Jesus into my heart when I was very young. I spent a lot of time with her and her family on Sundays. It was a time I will cherish forever. Angie was like a little sister to me. Forever in our hearts!!!

Please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your beloved Paula. May Almighty God give you the strength to carry on to the days ahead, and may the scriptural promise by Christ Jesus about the resurrection, as mentioned at John 5:28, bring you solace during this time of great sorrow.
When you need someone, take courage...
The Lord is with you everywhere
And understands, because
He knows the sorrow that you bear.
With Sincere Sympathy
