Love you so much Aunt Paula. My heart and hugs go to you Uncle Glenn and the family.
Aunt Paula had a certain energy about her that was so comforting. She gave me a few of her scarves a few years ago and I still have them, they hang from my bed frame. As well as a beautiful necklace that has blue, green, and yellow swirls. I will keep it forever. Love you all so much. Sending love and strength. ❤️
