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.

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
