To Paula's Family-

Paula is a lovely woman who touched many lives and will be greatly missed, and her memory treasured. I first met Paula when she was working at the Early Childhood Learning Center here in Nashua at the Boys and Girls Club in the late 1980's. My son Patrick, who is now 33 years old, has many fond memories (STILL !) of Miss Paula. She was so wonderful, loving, kind and forgiving with the children, as well as the parents (such as myself) who you can only imagine were not always easy to work with and reassure. Paula made people feel special and welcome, people always remember how others made them feel. With Paula at the Early Learning Center, I always knew that my son Patrick Moran had the best of care and was loved, which was instrumental in me being able to fulfill my obligations to work outside the home. It is an honor to have known Paula!

Regards, Paula Desjardins Moran

Shana, I am so sorry for you and your family's loss. Although many years have passed since I had the pleasure of being in the company of your mom, I always will remember her warm smile and her generosity. She had a heart of gold and she needed it to deal with our shenanigans! You were blessed to have her as a mother

Paula was a true friend. I loved her as a sister and we shared experiences bringing up our kids.

Being Shana's best friend since the 8 th grade and practically living at her house for sleepovers, I have millions of memories of my adopted mom...what I will carry in my heart is how much she loved us no matter what dumb things we did. She was one of a kind.
