    Paula, Your light shined bright. Thank you for shining that light with my dear cousin Gary. Your love for family was seen by anyone that spent anytime with you. When you were riding your motorcycle I would joke with you to get me some wind therapy too. Thank you again Paula for making my cousin the happiest man on earth. You are loved beyond measure. I’m so happy that you are in no more pain and in our Lord’s arms. ❤

    Oh Mrs. Paula I know you are not in pain anymore. I met you when Noah entered my 3 year old classroom and I was the teaching assistant. You always had a smile and sweet Noah and Parker skipping down the hall to get brother after school. Fly high beautiful angel! I know GOD got you now. And praying for your sweet family. I know you are so proud of them and always watching over them. You were there for me when my Justin was murdered. Thank you GOD for bringing this family in my life.

    We first met Paula about 30 years ago at Friends of His Cumberland Presbyterian Church (now Sherwood Cumberland Presbyterian Church). Had not seen her much except for a visit from her and sweet Noah several years ago, But have followed your dear family on Facebook. We are so sorry for your loss, Gary. God is gracious and has dear Paula in his loving arms.

  • Lori D Smith Posted April 16, 2022 5:41 AM

    Paula you left me with a need to live and enjoy the simple things in life! I loved watching you ride that Harley even knowing you didn’t feel well! Until we meet again beautiful friend!

  • Kay Burtcher, Matt & Sara Posted April 16, 2022 10:31 AM

    We are so sorry for your loss, but your loss is Heaven’s gain. We will miss Paula and her beautiful smile, she will live in our hearts forever, I hope she and her mom and dad are reunited and maybe she has found OD too, what a reunion. I am happy she is completely healed!

  • Dianne Kirk Posted April 16, 2022 3:21 PM

    I love the girlfriend time that Gary let us have just a few months ago! What a blessing it was to hear her laugh. She was serving Jesus even when she was ill & in pain. I love how before she & Noah would go back to the house from Church, she would always go up to Pastor Gary & give him a loving kiss. You see, I didn’t get to see a Christian marriage growing up. But I got to see it modeled for me so beautifully by Paula Childers & her sweet, loving husband Gary. I loved her so very much! I offer up prayers of Peace & Comfort for Pastor Gary & their children.

  • Sarah Devan Posted April 25, 2022 9:54 AM

    I was so sorry to hear of Paula’s passing. I only met her once, at an early Litas motorcycle event, but she impressed me with her compassion and desire to make the group a community. She will be missed!
