A long time true friend and an extraordinary woman. I have known her since Watching Stables where she was a teacher and mentor to many children, including my son. I will miss her terribly, but have a lot of wonderful memories to ease the sorrow.

Paula touched so many lives. From her time at Watchung Stables in New Jersey to her beloved yacht club and all her community work in Punta Gorda. She had so many talents to share. Once you met her, you would never forget her; her beautiful smile, wonderful laugh, kindness, strength, character, intelligence and grace. She was a treasure. She will be so missed. My deepest condolences to her family.

To the family of Ms. Paula Hess: I would like to express my condolences to you for the loss of your mother, grandmother and sister. It seems so unfair that death should have the power to take away someone you love, even if you feel they lived a long and enjoyable life. But the Bible holds out a hope that it is possible to be reunited with your dead loved one in the near future, right here on earth under peaceful, righteous conditions. This is the hope of the resurrection that Jesus promised at John 5:28,29. And at that time people will have the prospect of enjoying perfect health and they will never have to die again. This was Jehovah God's original purpose. Just imagine the joy you will feel when Ms. Hess is resurrected back to life to experience the fulfillment of these promises.

I first met Paula as a new member of the CARE Board in 1992. I was 27 years old, newly married and had never served on a non-profit Board. Paula mentored me and taught me how to be a responsible and effective Board member. She was a pillar of this community who will be terribly missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

It is hard to find words to descibe Paula. She came into my life about six years ago. The longer I knew her, the more my respect for her grew. She could find an answer to any challenge, no matter how difficult. For the last two years, she has been my touchstone. She was never too busy to answer a question or lend a hand of support. She was always honest, always strong but with kindness. I will miss her greatly. My sincere condolences to Evan and her family.

It was a true honor interviewing Paula for the cover of Isles Life Magazine. She was an amazing, smart, and talented lady. With years of dedication to many important causes, she helped shape Punta Gorda into the wonderful city that it is today. Condolences to her family.
