Erwin, Andy, Chris and families, our deepest sympathy and love on the loss of your Mom. She was a special lady and will be missed by many. We will never forget her many kindnesses and what a tremendous help she was during Rory and Rodney's wedding. Could never have done it without her! God Bless you all and may you find comfort and peace during this time as we know Pauline has.
