Love this family so! They ARE our family by choice and adopted in by love! Will miss seeing this sweet man and his kind soul at family get togethers. He was always smiling. Pauline is the most Godly example of what true love and a wife should be! She never left his side! Held his hand and cared for him every second forsaking her own needs. Such beauty and love! Prayers for JH, BB and David and all the many grandkids! You are loved and I know you will miss him but remember you will see him again in GLORY!

I remember Ronnie when he was just a sweet little boy. He was one of my many cousins but he was always special to me. When he and Pauline got married , in time she became one of my dearest friends. Pauline took wonderful loving care of Ronnie and I know she will miss him so much. All my love to all the family but we know Ronnie isn’t suffering any more.
