Dan and Jake,

Words fall short of expressing the sorrow that Donna, Quinn, Megan, and I feel in particular for the two of you. Paula's time was undoubtedly short in this world, but her positive impact was anything but that. Even in the face of death, she kept a sense of humor, projected both hope and acceptance, provided motherly love, and cared deeply for her husband. This was evident when talking to her, in the posts she shared and in pictures she graced. She leaves behind a wonderful legacy with Jake and you, and she has graced each of our memories for the lifetimes to follow. Paula will most certainly be missed by each and all of us, and we give you both all our love.
