    So sorry to hear that I have lost my dear cousin. Most of our lives together was when we were children. Aunt Dot and Uncle Clyde saw that we were happy, entertained, and well fed. And times that we were together at family get togethers, she and her sister were there with smiles and good conversations. Prayers. Rest In Peace.

    What can I say about Pauline that everyone already knows!
    We are so blessed to have seen and visited with her last Saturday. We are so devastated that we lost her so soon. I’ve known her for 25+ years and has always been aunt Pauline to me Gene and our boys. Pauline even though we’ll miss you terribly we do have comfort that you are whole, happy, and with Paulette! Until we see you again. Love Gene, and Debbie
