I can't express how I feel as I am typing, all I know is that I am in disbelief and miss Paola….we were suppose to hang out and wish I could turn back time. Looking at some of the pictures Paola and I took back in Summer Bridge make me cry and smile. Paola was filled with happiness and joy in her life, always with a big smile on her face. She would put others needs before hers. Whomever had the chance to meet Paola, sure knew she was the kindest and sweetest person. She was an amazing person inside and outside. I am thankful for her friendship, whom I learned a lot from and for being there for me. I will forever miss you Paola, and would not have changed her friendship for anyone else. I love you Paola, and will always have a place in our hearts.
"She was so kind and bubbly, even if she wasn't having a good day she would somehow pull a smile on her face. It's going to be hard not seeing her at work everyday and sharing our lunches, not sitting next to her during class and graduation, but God knows why he took her and we must all be strong. She wouldn't want to see us crying."

Paola was from Northern California who moved to Southern California to study business at Cal State Fullerton. At the moment, Paola had been working two jobs and attending school as a full time student. On behalf of the family sister Sylvia and I, we would appreciate any donation. Money will go towards Paola Sanchez family to cover all expenses.
