  1. I am so sorry to see Paula has passed away. I had Paula’s as my CCD 2nd grade religious education teacher. She was wonderful …she had us all over for a Christmas party with her husband and we decorated her tree and had so much fun! To her family ….my heart goes out to you for your pain and her warmth and loving nature have stayed with me and will stay with me for years go come. Blessings to you all as you mourn this lovely lady.

  2. We have children that are about the same age as Rick, Joe, and Jackie, and we lived close to Paula’s mother in Woburn, the late Irene Castine. Our family grew up with the Roszak and Castine families, celebrating Christmas, Thanksgiving, and many holidays together. We especially enjoyed going on many memorable vacations together in the big blue van that Lenny drove; we went to Maine, Canada, and many other places.
    What glorious and happy moments we spent together. We are blessed to have known Paula, her family, her mother, her siblings, and her friends. It has been a privilege to have known Paula and all the beautiful people around her. Thank you, Paula, may you Rest in Peace in the hand of our good Lord.

  3. I was so sorry to hear of Paula’s passing. I will never forget the kindness Paula showed me when we were at an event together and, in talking with her about my recent move from one home to another, I was feeling melancholy and mentioned that I was sad that I did not have firewood to burn at my new house. Paula presented me with a box of fireplace logs before the end of the event. That’s the kind of person Paula was! May you rest in peace. My heartfelt prayers to Joseph, Ricky and Jackie.

  4. Richard, Joseph & Jaclene, my deepest condolences on the loss of your mom. Paula was a special woman and brought light to those lives that she touched. We haven’t seen each other in a while but, we kept in touch every so often. Sending you all prayers and comforting thoughts as you navigate through your loss. Paula will be missed.

Sending love to Joe, Jackie, Emma, Autumn and Ricky & his family. ❤️
