Our prayers continue for you, Randy, McKenzie, Hope, James and Bennett, we would like to say that Paula's service was beautiful, heartwarming and memorable as you honored her wishes. McKenzie and Hope your voices were music to her heavenly ears, no doubt, as well as those of us many who joined the streaming service. The wonderful displays you all put together gave us more memories to hold onto the love and laughs she shared with us and our CFM and OFC families. Thank you for sharing this service for our dear beloved Paula. We love you all.
Susan Madden left a message on January 11, 2022:
I am so very sorry for your loss. I worked with Paula at NREP for quite a few years. I have so many memories of her at school as a preschool teacher as well as a music therapist. But some of the most precious memories are the conversations I got to have with her while we traveled to conferences (Pittsburgh, Richmond, Virginia Beach) and roomed together. She was such a gentle person. I know she loved her family more than anything. I am a better person for having known Paula. Will keep the memories until we meet again.

As a Sacred Heart organist, I played on a weekly basis with Paula as cantor, for many years. The first time we worked together I put my hands on her shoulders, frightening her because she didn’t know what I had in mind, and told her she had the most gorgeous voice. She visibly relaxed. 😂 She was pleasant and cheerful to work with and always laughed with me. I would bring unfamiliar music and ask if she would sing it, and she was always game. She and her daughters sang every Christmas at St. Bridget’s (where I also played) to everyone’s delight. I felt a special connection with her through this music relationship, but also because she was personable. To me, she modeled great love towards her husband and girls, and I hold these memories as valuable. I am shocked and saddened by her sudden passing, and hope for comfort and peace for her daughters and Randy. Hugs and prayers. 💕
Bethanne left a message on January 10, 2022:

As newcomers to Winchester Paula and Randy welcomed us to their home and to Sacred Heart parish and Sacred Heart choir. I always looked forward to Thursday evenings of fellowship and singing next to Paula in the soprano section. Her love of music and her praise of God and the way that music filled her soul touched the lives of so many young people and those who heard her sing or had the chance to sing with her. I feel blessed to have been one of them. I know that she is adding that beautiful voice to the heavenly choir. Sing on,Paula. Nick and I are sending our love and prayers to you all, Randy, Mackenzie, and Hope.

Marsha, Thomas and I are shocked and saddened that Paula has died. She was such a friendly and lively presence that her death is hard to imagine. She greatly enriched our community and taught Thomas to love music. Our hearts go out to Randy, to their daughters, and to all who loved her.

Sonya left a message on January 8, 2022:
My heart breaks A spirit of such joy Untimely taken Making music somewhere, I hope Or, at least, hearing it gloriously made Such unfiltered love, acceptance, laughter Wit, intelligence and openness to the wild world You will be remembered in the bones Sung praises to that would have made you blush You have two strong daughters, with roots in the ground And a wee one (a grandson) who will know you through His mother’s memories And his father’s And his grandfather’s And his aunt’s And his father’s And many others whom I do not know Who will remember, in turn, a mother who loved like a lioness. with gentleness And who was vulnerable And believed, therefore, I think, that nothing in life is simple But who nonetheless lived simply With her North Star being To love those she loved Completely Without judgement or reservation And that was a blessing For those of us Who came to know her Even a little

Randy and Family, Paula was a bright light whenever we were with her. Paula was warm and welcoming when we visited after several years away. We enjoyed sharing an Easter dinner with you when the children were young. We will always remember Paula’s musical gifts, her great laugh and inclusive ways! God bless Paula and you, her beloved ones. Sincerely, Ginnie and Chris

Amy Brownell left a message on January 7, 2022:
Miss Paula inspired my work with using music with young children during my music therapy practicum and internship, and much of the work that I continue to do today came from her. She was a wonderful lady, and I loved learning from her. My prayers are with her family and all those who knew her. I will miss her dearly.

It is with great sadness that I am writing these words . Paula was the kindest most loving person I’ve ever met . We came to the old church and she welcomed us with open arms , took my son Anthony in the children choir and since then we became friends . She has touched so many lives . She is at peace now with the Lord and watching over her family and us and most importantly she is happy and at peace My condolences to Randy , McKenzie and Hope

Paula was the sweetest soul I have ever met. Her smile could light up a room. And her voice was like an Angel singing.
Lisa Fritsch left a message on January 6, 2022:
She was the first music teacher at SCAA in 2000 for my boys, ages 2 and 4 at the time. We had just moved here and I wanted to get them involved somehow in music. I remember her "Hello, hello, hello" song so clearly. She loved music and those children. So long ago--and only knew her then and for those few short weeks. This is very sad. God be with her family!

Mrs. Midock, thank you for the music... :'(
Joyce and Geoff Byrd left a message on January 6, 2022:
Dear Randy and family, We send our deepest condolences to you. Paula was a light in this world. When our twins, aged 2 at the time. attended her Kindermusik class, she was always patient and positive. Crossing paths with her at Armel all those years ago was always a bright spot in our days. May you be surrounded with love and support. Joyce and Geoff

Many memories of watching music make a difference in the lives of children. She was magical with her music! We were blessed to have her teach at NREP.
Kathryn Haynes Johnson left a message on January 5, 2022:
I'm so very sorry. Paula and I grew up in the same church (Ashwood UMC), the same Bath County schools, and had the same piano teacher (in the attached newspaper photo, I am on the far left and Paula is on the far right of the first row of Mrs. McMullen’s piano/voice students). We sang in the same high school choir and served together on the yearbook staff...and shared many other adventures, including my accompanying her many times when she sang beautifully at church and school. I haven’t seen Paula for many years, but often spoke to her mother, Mabel, about her. Mabel was so very proud of Paula…her face would just beam when I asked what Paula was up to. In recent years, following Paula on Facebook, I found an inspiration and truth-speaker; a person who cared so very much about her family, her friends, and our world. You are all in my prayers as you deal with this devastating loss. Kathy Haynes Johnson, Hot Springs, VA

Paula was definitely a role model for me! I met her during my music therapy practicum and spent the following years learning from her. She was an inspiration to me, fellow music therapy students and many, many students at NREP. She left quite a legacy at NREP and I can only hope to live up to her expectations! Paula, you will be missed, but your music will live on in the hearts of many!!
Michael and Suzanne Rohrbacher left a message on January 5, 2022:
To Randy, family and friends of Paula Mike and I are so saddened by an overwhelming disbelief for the loss of Paula. The memories of her singing, teaching her students, being a mom to her daughters and an awesome wife to Randy are blips in time that bring a warmth and a smile to us.She was truth! She was love! She was honest! Being around Paula felt good! God blessed us with His spirit through Paula when we crossed paths. What a Light! Rest peacefully! We are truly blessed to have known her.

Glenn, Beth, and Monica Caluda left a message on January 4, 2022:
Happy memories of one who came into our lives for many reasons and many seasons - soprano in the Sacred Heart Adult Choir, director of the Sacred Heart Joyful Voices, fun times and dinners with choir friends, "parallel pregnancies" with Hope and Monica, neighbors for a brief time, a road trip to New Orleans - just a smattering of all that we shared. The Heavenly Choir rejoices to welcome her into the soprano section as they eternally sing the praises of God. So raise a glass to the soul that was Paula Midock and say a prayer of thanks for all that she did while she was in our lives.
