I worked with Pauline at Michigan State Police and she was the nicest lady. She always had a smile and treated me so kindly. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Jo and I are so sorry to learn of the passing of your Mom. She sounded like a wonderful person. It is never easy, but with time, it will become easier to accept. She really is in a better place and will continue to watch over you and yours, until you join her.

I am so sorry to read of Pauline's death. I worked with her many years ago when she was with MSP Purchasing in the Business Administration Division. She always had a great sense of humor and was a wonderful woman to work with. May your memories comfort you at this time of loss.
Sincerely,
Carol Bush (nee Janetzke)
