Paula drove a pickup truck...
If I miss one, please tell me. I have lost some GOOD friends. Rick (Life 101), Fred, Bonnie, Chuck (Dribbles by Chuck), Gary (hubby of Debbie (KY)), Just Bill (Colorado), The Farmer (?), Rose, Jimmy and the sweet Jean of OPP. Now I learn we have lost OUR Sweet Pauline of Texas, the Cowgirl who loved to ride the country roads.
Paula became close to us thru the Blog. Her tales of the backroads she and John traveled were always interesting. Mysteries she would raise about strange buildings, gates, ‘graves in odd places’ and objects that they spied
That lady conversed with cows, rabbits and turtles. A land turtle lived behind her house once. She called it Toby, she fed and talked to him often..
She was a natural poet. She wrote some ‘silly’ poems also. They caught my interest and we talked about it. She was sweet enough to give me permission to use a few of them in a Children’s book “Toby’s Tales.”
Paula had three daughters she loved dearly, and it was easy to see in her conversations, they loved her also.
I hate saying goodbye to anyone. This media has allowed me to learn a lot. We ‘meet’ many people on the internet we will never see. A few we got to see in our travels. Some disappear and we never hear from them again; that leaves us wondering. I do so appreciate Paula’s daughter allowing us some closure by informing her readers of her passing. Rest in Peace Pauline and tell Mel hello for us and we too appreciate his service in the Army as you waited for him.
I will always "REMEMBER PAULA" when I see or think of the Alamo.
Please mention someone if I missed them. Or tell someone you miss. Some people were very special, Jean of OPP and Pauline are unforgettable.
I am guilty of searching OBITS in areas where I know someone was from, i.e. Lucy. Joe & Spunky. I still wonder about Lucy, I found Joe's obit and put it on a blog once.
