HENNING, TN (WMC-TV) - One week after two postal employees were killed inside the post office in Henning, investigators continued to search for a killer as former classmates of one of the victims remember their friend. 

"I remember how happy Paula was every time I saw her," Danielle Wheeler said. "She had that same beautiful smile you see in all the pictures. The smile you always saw."

Covington High's Class of 1995 fondly remembers their classmate Paula Robinson.  The former Paula Croom was known as the girl with the big smile.

"Paula was full of life, prettiest smile you could think of, sort of like a porcelain doll," Marcus Heaston said.

Heaston, who grew up with Paula Robinson, remembers her as a loving wife, mother, and friend.

"She had nieces attending Covington High," he said. "She would come up and check on them. For senior pictures, she would be the one applying the make up."

Paula and her husband were about to celebrate a very special day.

"I think they were about to have their 10-year anniversary next week, and it was obvious the love he had for Paula," Wheeler said.

Members of Paula's class are raising money to help her family, and hope police will soon make an arrest and that justice is served. 

"There's nothing we can do to bring Paula back, but at least that will give us...just know the people are caught...will make it better," Wheeler said.

You can call Covington High School if you'd like to make a donation in memory of Paula Robinson. 

If you have any information that could lead to an arrest in the case, call toll free 1-800-TBI-FIND.  There is a $50,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest.
