Paulette, we love you - You made each of us feel special, always noticing something exceptional about each of us! I loved your smile and how often you would reach out to touch our arm, shoulder or hand to keep that connection real, letting us know you are listening. You loved to laugh. You were so "tickled pink" with laughter and looked directly into our eyes when speaking. We love our cousins and as our families grew in size but we never lost that special connection that our mothers and fathers raised us to cherish. A brighter light always shined when you entered the room and I will keep that in my heart with you. God, Country, Family intertwined let us enjoy the rollercoaster in our temporary worldly home. Till we meet again, Love you Cousin Becky
