I loved her sooo much. She made my life better just from knowing her. I'm so glad she was a part of my life! She always greeted me with a smile,a hug and told me she loved me and that she would see me tomorrow. I would stop by everyday to check on her and make sure she was okay. She opened a spot in my heart that can never be filled and I'm so grateful for that. I loved her and I hope she is happy in heaven with her husband and family and hope she is waiting to greet me one day.

Pauline was always so sweet & helpful & we often worked together in politics. My husband took her brother's place on City Council way back in the 70s.
She always had a smile & tackled any job with optimism. Always a lady! May she go with God & family to a more peaceful realm.

It saddens me that I will no longer see this beautiful woman.She was one of the dearest,sweetest woman I have ever met. I never heard her complain. When I delivered her lunch,I would great her with"Good Morning Beautiful" When asked how she was doing,she would always say,just fine. Many times she would be at her table working her Sudoku puzzles. There was often a jigsaw puzzle in the works,too. I am grateful that God allowed me to know her for the time I did. My life has been enriched and I am better for knowing her.
