Just thought about a moment, I think I know when Paula was conceived. You could not let me heal with Kimberly before you have sex with me again Extremely painful.

Hello daddy,
Crazy dream the other day, not so sure what it was about. I don't like the fact it was about you dying all over again, can't quite figure it out that both me and Kim basically dreamt the same dream (in my dream) but l guess it not for me to figure it out.
All I know is l love you and misses you so much.
For always and forever,
Your baby girl.

You are here. You come through with your children. You will never leave us.

Your great grandbaby is here as you already know. He looks just like you right now. It's so ironic how l put on your shirt, that l hadn't wore in quite some time and the baby was born the same day.
Thank you for being there.
I love you so much!♥️

Today at around 12:00 I was crying about you feeling that I could not go on. I said to myself you might come through some kinda way to let me know you were still there. Approximately 5 minutes later your daughter Kimberly call me and said I quote(Hello the love of my life) i know you are still with me and will never leave me. Mind you now, she has never, ever said that to me before in her life. Through her you came, and I was kinda waiting on it...It happen!!!
(Hello the love of my life). I will make myself a bracelet are something out of that phrase. (Hello the love of my life. and when she said it, I automatically knew it was you! You Once told me, ( You would love me til the end of time. I love you Ralph Church Jr...The Love of my life, forever, and evermore. Your Childhood sweetheart and Mother to your 4 children. Paulette...

Did you knock my fan down 3 weeks ago?

Ask me if you can give me a Billion dollars for my mother, And I'll tell you go straight to . There's no price you can give me for this woman. I can't even remember a time l was upset with this woman, and if there's ever a time, it was something so small, you wouldn't be able to detect it. I was her last, her baby girl. She had gotten pregnant with me, so fast, even the nurses couldn't believe it. She had my sister and I in the same year. Yes!!! THE SAME YEAR!!!. She was so upset, she didn't even want me. Thank God for my daddy, he said l wasn't going nowhere Everyone wanted me, My aunt Gail, Normal Jean, Everyone!. She didn't even want to look at me. (But) when you took one look at me, she said to herself, "WOW"! She such a beautiful doll! (But) she was still mad, . Even though, you were upset, you knew deep down in your heart, we were a Bond! Something no one could touch. I still remember the cloth doll you made for me. You made your own little sound effects with your voice, something that became so real to me. You have a very distinguish voice that draws so much attention, that everyone loves and loved.
You are not only a mother to your four children, you are a mother to everyone, and you would go through hell just letting everyone know. You are my friend, my counselor, my hero, but most of all, you are (MY MOTHER)!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY MOM!
WITH ALL OF MY SOUL!
LOVE YOU FOREVER!
your baby girl!♥️

So it goes like this! I'm going to try to keep it nice and simple. This is my Father's 3rd year Heaven Anniversary. I politely went out my way, yes out my way (because l am in a lot of pain), to find some pretty flowers and balloons. Well l tried to budget it right and went to Food City and purchased some cheap pretty white balloons, with mint green strings. Ohhhh!!! They were So pretty!!! With the helium in them.
My awesome husband met me at the grave site, wrap the balloons on an artificial rose, stuck it deep in the ground. While we were putting the flowers in the ground, Snap!!!!!!! Yes!!!!! Only a person, or spirit can make a clothes pin snap and undo like that. that BIG ! HUGE CLOTHES PIN! YES HE DID IT! My poor husband tried to catch them but he couldn't .
Daddy! It was funny but not that funny!. Do you have any idea what l been through today!
But it was good knowing you're still with me and will never will leave my side.

Father of my Children... I have not forgotten you. Just did not have the photo to acknowledge that day. I went to put my love down for you with flowers of ponsettia and white little ponsettia and to my surprise I could not found your resting place...I finally remember I was in the wrong place when i call our baby girl Paula to ask and I finally came to me. I then went to the right area to lay down my love and honor for you. In doing so I lost my favorite glasses... I don't know weather you took them are Gail I went to her sight too. It was if as though you wanted to say I am looking down on you and this is what I can do... take your glasses. Anyway, i did not find them....return them when you can....I have a flash drive of info I want so dearly to put in your honor and I hope i get this thing right...right now I am afraid to download. I will get back to you when it is done. Remember...i love you always...My longtime friend i met when i was 11 and you were 12 and father to my 4 children...Paulette. I found my glasses. Thank you!

Yesterday was a very significant day for You and I. I became your Bride. You became my husband...It would have Marked 50 years. I miss you so very much although I parted with you I sometimes wonder.... I don't wonder about this though, Your departure was a very unhappy one for me, one that I will never forget. Thinking you would be coming home only not too. Descending into the Heavenly father holy arm. I cry every single day thinking about you how we meet and the children 4 of them I bear for you. I know you love us so much. Yes July 27th was looked upon as a Holy day for which I broke my vows. I hope one day to know what it will all mean for me. God does not like Divorce. I thought about you intensely yesterday, even though about walking down to your gravesite I would have been empty handed but I know you would have not care. Please know for as long as I live, I will not ever forget Ralph Church Jr. The father of my children, and life long friend. I 'm thinking we were in the 5th grade...You from 3rd and I from Central Avenue. Just a hop skip and a jump to see me....From that day You never left. I say that because i know even though i left you never left me in mind and now in spirit. I will alway love you. HAPPPY 5OTH!!!! Love you sooooo soooo much!!!!!!!! Your Paulette!!!!

his Life

I love you a miss you so much. My sister Cynthia asked me why I love you so much, I told her because you loved me

Had a dream of you for the first time

You came into my room, and I was so extremely happy. I told you not to leave because I wanted to be with you way  you use to be so long along. I wanted that so bad. I told you you had to go because Joe was on his way, just as  you were getting ready to go, you turn around and came back and told me Joe was on his way. I told you to hurry and get out you went out a sliding glass door, I was in the bed  the door remain open I could see you leaving and I tried to close the door and Joe came in and ask me what was going on. I pretended I did not know what he was talking about. He continue to ask me and I continue to deny. I wanted you so bad.

Your daughter Kimberly stated and I quote(You and him shared Christmas together and he was mad)
I believe he came there just like when Jr came in anger.
I think he wants for you to want him.
He wants you with him.
Was Ralph Selfish?
