Grief and Loss and losing a child or family member in death is also a specialty. She knows firsthand the feelings, stages, and issues one goes through when losing a child or family member because she has experienced the loss of her only child. Surviving the loss of a child takes special knowledge in helping parents, siblings and families work through this most painful issue of life. As a way of turning grief and loss into something positive in memory of her son, she set up the Ryan Paul Whitaker Memorial Foundation, to bring honor and glory to God and to help people which was her son’s goal in life. In an effort to Leave a Legacy for her son Ryan, she set up an Educational Trust Fund to send children to Christian schools. The former Chancellor, Dr. Carpenter, of Lone Star College, awarded and dedicated the Nursing Labs in memory of her son in the new Health Science Building as the Ryan Paul Whitaker Nursing Laboratories. Ryan wanted to go back to college to become a nurse when he died from medical malpractice. She has many more great things to do to bring honor to God and in memory of her son Ryan.
With God’s guidance, sense of hope, and a strong spiritual conviction, Paula combined her passion and dedication into leaving a legacy for her son through the building of the Cross of Tomball to help change people’s lives. The cross is dedicated to the Glory of God through The Cross of Jesus Christ and in memory of Ryan Paul Whitaker whose mission in life was to help people. At present over 22 million people travel past the cross and are blessed by it each year.
