My deepest sympathy to your family. Paula was a dear friend to me at the Angola Christian Church. I sang in the choir with her. Paula always had a smile and greeted me every week with a hug and a "hello kid"........... She was always dressed so cute and had such cute jewelry with her outfits. When I would compliment her she would always say it was as old as the hills. I don't think I ever saw the same thing twice:) She was a doll!!!! Loved her dearly and will miss her. I was blessed having known her. I pray for comfort and strength in the days ahead for your family. God Bless You all. Liz Sova

As a kid I thought of Jane an easy-going Aunt, mother of my cousins. As an adult and growing older myself, I came to know Jane's faith as genuine as her easy-going personality. Those in her personal family know her much better than I, but my belief in her is based on her consistent behavior whenever I was around her. She will be missed by many, but her spirit now knows the presence of God's Love beyond our comprehension. I see her easy going personality continuing to live on in her sons and those she touched with her gentle spirit.
