I am so sorry to hear of your loss - I worked with Paula's Mom, Helen at Iowa Beef and she was a very dear friend of Helen's - she spoke often of Paula and I did know her back in my days at Iowa Beef - I moved away from Fort Dodge to California in the 1970's but Paula and her mom were two very special friends from back in my days in Fort Dodge - God's Blessings and prayers to Paula's family.

Paula and Steve were our neighbors growing up next door. I will never forget her and the bond they both had with my parents. The get together s in the kitchen, the stories, the laughs, and the fun. Both of us having pear trees and the picking of the pears. But my favorite story was when Jenni was born and my brother Mark, who was about 4 years old, picked flowers for the new baby and took them to Paula. Tulips.....out of her flower garden. Prayers to the family, thank you for all the fond childhood memories and watching both Jenni and Jake grow up. Something I will never forget. Prayers to all the Torkelson family.
