Paula Kay loved her family deeply as well as the children she taught in school, for teaching was a dream come true for her as she always wanted to teach little ones. She had a sweet spirit about her and went about her work with a quiet resolve to get the job done to the Glory of God, for she knew that all that she did was as unto the Lord. She will be greatly missed, but we know that she is always with the Lord now, having been prepared in this life for what lies ahead in God’s plans for her.
