« another Paula dream -- Tracy | Main | Paula Day Brunch »



We all miss her, Jim--and thank you for helping us remember more of the reasons why.

I think she saw you and me as two of a kind--rangy guys who needed to stop and think a little more, maybe mellow out over a Vernor's float.

Do come back to the Midwest sometime--the Shanks Hilton is still open for business, serving homemade pizza on Saturday nights.

Grandma MIriam

What a wonderful philosophy: keeping a balance between concern and happiness. We're grateful for every minute we've enjoyed together.


Thanks for writing, Jim. Those are some lovely memories.

Billy Shanks

I don't think I ever met you Jim, but your recollections of Paula are so accurate and pleasing to me. Thanks for contributing.
