It is with great sympathy and heavy hearts that we express our condolences for the loss of your wife, Roy. We considered ourselves quite lucky to have both of you as our neighbors at Mill Landing for two years. You were special people to both of us. No matter how badly Paula felt or what difficulties she was facing she always had a bright smile and kind words. We know she will be missed and hope that she finds peace in her new home. You are in our thoughts.
We want to express our condolences at the loss of your wife, mother, grandmother. She was a wonderful person in every way. Everyone who met her loved her because of her sweet personality and kindness. Such a good person is a real loss to the world and to her family and friends. Heaven will welcome her with open arms, we have no doubt. Roy, we will keep you in our prayers that you will be comforted.
Ken and Sharleen Peck
