    Paula god put you in my life for a reason, and you wasn’t a friend you was my sister a part of my family. I miss your phone calls. I miss making you laugh when you was sad. Mamaw misses you. You will always be in my heart, and never forgotten. I’m going to miss being on the lake with you and laughing. You was a fighter with a lot of spunk. You was a beautiful kind person and a great mother and grandmother I know you loved those kids and babies so much. I know you loved my family like your own. I’m glad I could raise your spirits in the hospital and I know you know psalms 23 came from me that Jo read to you. You had such a giving spirit, and would do anything to help someone. You will be so missed by all of us. I pray that they figure this out. This was a tragedy, but I know you are with your momma and you’re watching us from above. You have been promoted God gave you wings.
    Oh, she’s an angel
    Let her fly, let her fly
    She’s gone home to glory
    To her home in the sky
    When god sees her comin
    Heavens choir will smile
    And sing, Oh she’s an angel,let her fly, let her fly
    Ohh, she’s an angel, let her fly
    – let her fly Dolly
