What a wonderful loving tribute to my amazing loving Aunt Pauline. I have so many wonderful memories with her in Burk, Iowa Park and Austin. She always had wise advice for me and always loved me no matter what I did or what path I strayed from. She was a rock for me. I love you, Aunt Pauline. I'm glad you are with my dad and SL. I'm sure y'all had a big ole party when you arrived in Heaven. Her laugh is one you would never forget. She loved a person with her whole heart and soul. She was the best cook ever!! And she always smelled so nice with her Clinique and perfumes. I loved hugging her b/c then I would smell like her for awhile afterwards. She was my friend, my buddy and someone I will always cherish and admire. I enjoyed taking her to Austin and having barbeque at the Hard Eight and stopping at the Hidden Dutchman. She loved to have fun. Her family always came first to her. She will always be in my heart and I am blessed to have had her in my family. Linda, Kenn, RD and all the grand kids, I send my condolences to you. I loved your tribute. It was beautiful just like her. Love, Karen
