When I get where I'm going
Well, there'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah, when I get where I'm going
Don't cry for me down here


Paula and I went to Nathan Hale together and we palled with Patti Dederer across the street. She was an enjoyable friend.

Paula and I were school friends. She lived across the street from Libby (Marlow) Hood and I lived down the hill. We did some great times in high school. Wish I could of seen her more after high school.
Rest in Peace, Paula.

Paula and I were best friends & neighbors. She lived just three houses up from me. Initially she was even on our party line! I remember if I wanted to call her, I had to first call the operator to do that for me explaining that she was on my party line. Her dad Gilbert & my Mom used to take tuns driving us to school. I can remember thinking it odd the way he turned the wheel of his car, sort of pushing the wheel around. I met Paula shortly after her mother had passed. I remember feeling sorry for her in that respect. We kind of drifted apart in High School, but I still have fond memories of our childhood together. I did my best to locate her for our 50th class re-union, but was unsuccessful. I miss the good times we had together growing up as Lake City kids.
