She was so kind and loved her family so much. What a wonderful long life she had and what a wonderful family to be proud of. Sorry to hear of her loss. I know she walks with Jesus in the garden this morning and is made fully well. Blessed to have known her for so many years.
I especially was fortunate to be her home care nurse many years ago for a period of healing a joint. She is a special person indeed missed by many.

In the short time that I knew Pauline I grew to appreciate her sense of humor and paid attention to the lessons about life she offered through her examples, she modeled what she expected from other people. One of the things I cherish most about her is the love of her family, she had a way of making you forget about the small things and keep in mind the bigger picture. Rest in peace and condolences to the family.
