I just learned of Paulette's death through the obituaries. I can't find the words to express my feelings except to say that I am shocked and full of grief. Such a wonderful and sweet human being. I will always and forever remember my beautiful cousin. I will be thinking of Phyllis, Linda and Marsha, Paulette's children, and husband, May God be your comfort at this very sad time.

Paulette you have been a great friend and a tremendous example of what it is to stand on the word of God. You're very beautiful lady, it's been such a joy to Know You Through the Years, through thick and thin, heartaches, and joyous celebration, life brought many situations, but God always had the upper hand. You are a great example of what it is to be a woman of God I appreciated you and your friendship we will all miss you but until we meet again.
