I was a good friend of the Coley family when I first met them in 1966 when I moved to Miami, Florida. We worked at the VA Medical Center in downtown, Miami, FL: I had been thinking of them recently and knew Paula’s parents had passed. I visited her father’s home in Statesville, NC several times and once with my daughter Janelle. I thought I would try to locate Paula and catch up. Sadly, I see that she passed back in 2017. My heart is numb after reading that info. I remember that had Dad’s home was next door to his niece, Ruth McLean. I hope she is well. Maybe if she reads this she can contact me via my email so I can find out what happened to Paula. I knew that she became an Acupuncture Practitioner and studied Chinese Medicine after retirement from the VA Health Care System. I guess she moved up to that beautiful area of NC and and decided to live in her Dad’s House. May the Coley family be reunited in Heaven – I loved and and now miss all of you.
