  • Paula will always remain 17 in our hearts. That is the year she, along with six other cheerleaders, became part of our family. We had so much fun–we laughed a lot, travelled up and down the Valley together, and really were a family. Right at the center of the laughter and good times was always Paula. That girl knew how to enjoy life. We are grateful we could share some of her life with her. Bill and Teresa Knirck

  • Memories of all the fun times we shared when our kids were growing up are flooding through me as I write this to you, Pat and Bob. I remember all those little blond heads bobbing around and I hear their laughter and shrieks of joy.

    Paula’s time here was much too short – it seems only yesterday she and Julie were little girls. The entire Coates family sends our condolances to you. I wish I could put my arms around you and give you a giant hug and tell you in person how much I care. Just know that you are missed and loved by all of us. The Coates Family, Kay, Dick, Jay, Julie and Doug

  • Some of the best times of my life were spent with Paula. They were the best because of Paula who was so full of love, life and a happy spirit. She made everything we did fun and full of great memories. Even though we lost touch after high school, I feel I have lost a great friend and a person who was a huge part of my life.

    My sympathies, love and prayers go to Paula’s family. I hope you are aware of just how many peoples’ lives your wonderful daughter touched. She will not be forgotten.

    All my love, Lissa

  • Dear Pat and family,

    I didn’t know Paula but I still hurt for you and your family. I know and love you from West Side Church and can’t imagine the pain you feel. Remember you are loved by Jesus and your church family. Hang in there one day at a time. My prayer for you:

    Lord Jesus:

    I lift up to you the Cassidy family and ask that you would surround them with your presence and comfort. Remind them of your love for them and how much you love Paula. Assure them of your promises of eternal life and bless them with your peace that passes all understanding. Help them to take one day at a time and trust you in all circumstances. Take them all in your arms of comfort and love.

    In Christ’s name, Amen.

    Love in Him, Peggy Henry

  • I just wanted you all to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you now and always. Paula was one of my closest and dearest high school friends; there is a place in my heart that will be forever touched with her memory. From the Blue Falcon to the countless sleepovers, her smiling face and ability to enjoy life to its fullest has made a lasting impression on my life. Some of the happiest memories of my younger years are those I spent with you Paula. Paula, you will be greatly missed and were loved by all those around you. Thank you for touching my life in such a positive way, your presence will be in my heart forever. To her family, please except my sincere sympathy and hold in your hearts the joy that she brought to all those that were touched by her presence.

  • Paula, were just checking in with you to tell you how much we continue to think of you each day. As the Christmas holiday arrives, we can’t help but remember our last Christmas together. We shared the words “we love you”

    and our hugs were a little tighter that last Christmas. We know your with us even now, and your always in our hearts. We think the ache is sometimes lightened, and then we realize it’s not. We miss you. We’re thinking of you, and we can’t help but smile and laugh about all our past Christmas’s with you. You’ll be with us this year too, we know. Brandon talked of you today. He’s still grasping with the how’s and why’s. You left such a profound print on his life. Your life served such a special purpose to so many, and you didn’t know it. We love you, and we’ll be listening this Christmas for your special “bell” to be ringing for us.
