Ms. Pauline was very special to me and my husband Steve. We went to church with her at Friendship Baptist Church. She sat with us every Sunday. She called my husband her boyfriend. She would kiss him every Sunday and leave lipstick on him. She always sent us a card on our birthdays, anniversary, and at Christmas. She was very special to us and we loved her very much!!!

When my Mother, Peggie Baker, passed away two and a half years ago, my Aunt Pauline was at the funeral, sitting next to me. That day began a bond between us that has blessed me and helped me to get through the loss of my Mom. Pauline was my Mom's Sister-in Law and they talked on the phone all the time. When Mom died, God took their phone relationship and connected me with one of the most wonderful women, I've ever known, my own Aunt Pauline. Our talks on the phone were such fun times! She always made me laugh and had great stories to tell.

I was encouraged by her wisdom...she was one smart lady! When I told her that one day, she laughed and said that she didn't have much of an education. She might not have a degree on the wall, but she had God's wisdom in her heart, so superior to any earthly knowledge!

My Aunt Pauline was a woman of prayer! She believed in the power of prayer and that the God, to whom she prayed, was in control over any situation. We will never know how blessed we are, because of all her prayers to God, on our behalf.

From her stories and prayer requests, it was certain that she loved her family. She never hung up the phone without telling me that she loved me. God is love, and I think that He used Pauline to show His love to us all!

I will miss my Aunt Pauline, but I'm so happy for her! She believed that Jesus was God Son who died for her sins. The forgiving and saving grace of Jesus, ushered her into the Family of God and I know that she is enjoying eternity with Him now. For her to live was Christ, but for her to die, Oh, that was GLORY! One day, those of us who know Jesus, will see her again! I can see her smiling now and saying, with her Southern drawl..."Way-uh-ll" (Well)! All praise be to God!
With Love, Becky Baker Speer

So many memories of this special friend: Pauline was one of my Sunday School "Girls" for years, she traveled with us on our Senior Church Trips which Delane and I organized, loved lunch and shopping, and even found humor in all our congregating at "The Sick House" for after-church-Sunday lunches! Everything was more fun if Pauline was present. I will forever remember her spirit of happiness, her beautiful smile and her contagious laugh. Most of all, I will miss our phone chats during these last years. My world is smaller and dimmer without my precious, loving friend. But Heaven is brighter and happier today because she has arrived. Love, prayers and hugs to her wonderful family --she loved all of you so much.

Aunt Pauline always greeted you with a kiss! She gave the best hugs and would pray with you in a second. I got to where I would call her more and more so glad I did! I was going to come spend a Saturday with her soon bring lunch she said I will eat anything I like food. I always told her after daddy passed away I just liked to sit and look at her because I see my daddy. I know great were her rewards when she entered in to her heavenly home. Thank you for loving me Aunt Pauline

My family and I wish to express our sympathy in the lose of your mother and my aunt.
I have some very fond memories of spending the night in our days while growing up especially days of picking cotton and the troubles Connie and I got into.

May God's grace and mercy get your family through this time of grief
