I had a crush on Paula as a freshman at New Bedford High. I can still remember her face. She was my first experience losing someone I cared about. She never knew.Since then I've lost many people I cared about. Some knew. Some didn't. Make sure that, if you care, let them know you care.

We were in 9th grade when Paula passed. It was only the second time in my life when a contemporary died. I remember going to the funeral with friends and feeling grief. I'd been to other funerals of older persons but this was different. She was a very nice person that always had a moment for anyone.

Yep I was lucky.  Paula was a friend of mine. She had two sisters one older and one younger. Our families were pretty close. Her family owned Senicals Pharmacy at Lunds Corner. I used to get a hot fudge Sunday there after Boy Scouts on Monday night-25 cents- nuts were an extra 5 cents. Paula was the first girl I ever had a crush on. In 9th grade at Normandin she was getting sicker, her voice was changing, & I remember her turning to me in Mr. Chavier's English class & saying "good job Peter" on a report. Obviously I never forgot that. She was sweet, kind & gentle & smart as a whip. She was always at the top of the class. Once our French teacher, ? Mr. Gaspar, said instead of reading your exam grades in alphabetical order, today he would start with Z, that would be Paula being first which she deserved but wasn't pushy about.

so when I take my car to Ashley Ford for service & wait, I walk up to the Mt. Pleasant St cemetary and I sit by here grave & remember Paula & sometimes shed some tears that I miss her & her life was cut so short.
