I did not know Paula but I am sure I have been seated near her on 9/11 when we remember our First Responder husbands. My deepest condolences to you, her family, who remains here, but I can only imagine the beautiful reunion she and her husband Robert had... I lay flowers at the memorial now and again and will say a special prayer for Paula when when I do. Wishing you all a gentle grieving.

I remember oh so well those days way back as friends growing up in elementary school and MHS and the years we worked at SVH. It was only after I retired that I was fortunate enough to reconnect with Paula and enjoy many good times with her and our lunch group. Rest In Peace Paula. I will miss you but find comfort in knowing you and your beloved Bob are together once again. Maggie S
