    As with everyone – I am shell shocked about Paulette’s passing. I have been lucky enough to assist with her books the past 2 years and we have had rousing conversations that always ended in a good laugh. I truly admired her dedication and she always gave her all. My heart is heavy and I am so glad we got to see each other last week. We are going to miss her big time. My best to Larry and the family :>

    I am heartbroken to hear the news of Paulette’s sudden passing. She was such a kind, gentle and loving person. Always took care of us kids across the street from Rockheights Elementary School!! I’m sorry Larry that you’ve lost your partner in life, and the grand kids have lost their wonderful grandmother, and I’m so sorry Tim and Patrick that you’ve lost your mom. No words can describe the grief, feelings of emptiness and sadness that goes along with losing a parent. I hope that you can find peace as you continue to try and move forward…
    Love always, xoxoxox
