Keli Gwyn (keligwyn) | 757 comments Paula's sister-in-law shared on Paula's Facebook page that she passed away suddenly on May 18. She's now at home with the Savior she loved so deeply.

You probably knew Paula O. as our wonderful birthday party hostess. She blessed so many of us over the years. Our dear friend will be missed by many.

Shannon Farrington Oh gracious! I am so sorry to hear this! Paula was so sweet! I always enjoyed talking with her. I am happy to think of her though with Jesus.

Is there an address etc. where we might send condolence messages to her family?

Since Paula won a book on my blog some time back, I have her address. I don't have permission from her family to share it, though, but you can send cards to me. I'd be happy to collect them and forward them all to her family.

THREE DEATHS IN THE FAMILY

GOD KNOWS WHEN OUR TIME ON EARTH IS UP

THREE BIRTHS IN THE FAMILY

HE KNOWS WHEN TO REPLENISH WITH BIRTH

SO SMELL THE ROSES AS YOU PASS

TAKE TIME AND MAKE LIFE LAST

GIVE PRAISES FOR ALL YOUR BLESSINGS

EVEN WHEN YOU ARE NOT SURE YOU HAVE ANY

GOD GIVES US WHAT WE NEED

NOT ALWAYS WHAT WE WANT

ALL ARE PART OF "LIFE"
