I am so sorry for your loss. Pauline had a beautiful smile and a wonderful laugh. She was always a pleasant, happy and caring individual. Our mother Mignonne always looked forward to seeing Pauline and talking about her move to Florida... it was such an adventure, Pauline would say.

Thoughts and prayers for all of you.

The entire Mailhot family 'Babe' will miss Pauline who was such a big part of our lives for so many years. Marcoux and Harvey was a family business and Pauline was the smiling face that greeted people there. For Mignonne, and for all the members of Babe's family, we offer condolences to Pauline's family.

May joyful memories fill your hearts at this moment of loss.

Love,
Irene Mailhot-Bernard
