So sorry for you loss. Paula was a very sweet person. I am happy to have known her.
Dear Steve and the Zmiyarch family. I am so very sorry. I am thankful you shared the video here. None of this seems real. I don't think there has ever been a more special woman to grace this earth. Her sweet soft nature pervaded any place she was. She was even more beautiful on the inside than her outer beauty. I know how hard this must be for everyone. It feels like the end of an era. Bless you all. I hope you find the strength you need. I have no contact info for any of you. If anyone wants to reach out and [email protected] 208-354-8650 I grieve with you. Much love, Kathleen Egan
Paula was a beautiful woman inside and out, and a great sister-in-law. I have some fond memories of times we shared but my favorite was when I would stay overnight with Steve and Paula, in the morning she would make me Belgium Waffles, and go out to their bushes and pick fresh raspberries. She was a great cook. Paula you will be missed, God Bless you.
I am very sorry to hear about Paula - my thoughts and prayers are with you and the family of Paula
We are sorry to learn of the passing of your father, Sophie. Please accept and share our condolences with your family. Jack and Ellen
I am very sorry to hear this sad news. Paula will always be remembered in my heart as a wonderful beautiful lady. I worked with her at Duplex Products and have such fond memories of her. You will be missed. May you Rest In Peace
Paula was a year ahead of my in high school. I was in awe of her beauty and artistic talent. To me she was everything that was "cool" in 1971. She signed my year book "to an interesting kid." I was thrilled! I thought of her often over the years and will never forget the boost she gave an insecure Junior. I am so sorry for your loss
Steve..we send our condolences...may God give peace and comfort to you and the family knowing she's in a new day, new beginning, new life in the heavenly realm on a new journey...huge hug, Laura and Phil
Steve, I only had the privilege of meeting Paula once, but she was a sweetheart . My heart goes out to you and her family. May she Rest In Peace . Nancy Hutty Sperl
