Fonly, Donna M. Cooper/Crocker RR#2, Alberton, P.E.I.Cda Donna M. Cooper/Crocker, November 22, 2006 I was fortunate enough to be a customer of Paulette's for a few years. She put the first Octel voicemail system in for EDS/GM, and was on site for more than a month. I remember my customer saying that they couldn't believe she'd been on site for more than a month, and still never wore the same thing more than once! Very fond memories - was one of the nicest people anyone would ever meet!
