Memories Timeline


  1. To the Paul family,
    My deepest condolences for you all. I’ll always remember your mom’s pleasant smile. She lived a good life. May God bless you all during this difficult time.

  2. Jimmy,
    I fondly remember her warm, generous hospitality and kind spirit whenever I visited your home during our high school days. My sincere condolences to you and your family.
    Best wishes,

  3. Mrs Paul made a difference in my life. I wanted my nursing career to reflect her life’s mission. She made a difference in so many lives.

  4. Jimmy, Ron and the rest of the family: I am so sorry to hear of this sad news. Our families go way back …I do believe my sister went into nursing because of my Aunt Cil and your mom. No one needs to tell you what an “Angel” she was. Gee…it’s been a long time…but the last time I saw her was at Tutor’s (ha!) and she STILL had that same great smile on her face; really a great woman, I loved your mom.
    May God help you during this painful time.
