giggle. Paula easily made friends wherever she went.
Whether Paula was making someone feel special/beautiful in her salon chair, re-decorating her
house/or someone elses, cheering loudly from the bleachers, loading the juke box or pulling up a
barstool and taking over the karaoke machine for the night. Paula loved life to the fullest with
absolutely no regrets!
