It’s been just over two years since this picture was taken but longer than that since dementia took this precious lady from her family. My last words to her were “I love you” as we hugged goodbye. She grabbed my arm and it were as if the words were there, they just wouldn’t come. She finally looked me in the eye and simply said “Just keep on keeping on.” If Pinterest were around in the late 60’s, she would have written the book on it. She was sewing leisure suits for her boys that looked better than store bought. She sewed curtains for her home and clothes for my stuffed monkey. She refinished furniture and made candlesticks from newel posts. She cooked the most fabulous spaghetti. We got to spend the day together shopping in Knoxville and riding escalators while the big kids were at school. She could ride a horse and water ski. It was my job to let her know when As The World Turns came on and we’d watch together. I’m so blessed to have these sweet memories of my childhood. Please say a prayer for her husband of 65 years, Charles Hurst. He was such a caring companion and I’m sure he’s a little lost without her. Pauline, I’ll just keep on keeping on until I see you again beyond those pearly gates. I love you dearly.

Aunt Pauline,
You were the most talented and sweetest person I know. I will miss you, but I know you are in the hands of the Lord. I am sorry I couldn't travel down there. My deepest sympathy to the family.

Pauline was the sweetest soul, I know she is laughing with the angels. It was my pleasure taking care of her during her time at the chandler house. All of us girls loved her equally, we enjoyed her so much. I pray for comfort and peace of mind for family and friends during this time. During her last few days, she was comfortable and she enjoyed praise through music. I’m gonna miss her sweet smile! Rest In Peace, Pauline. ☺️

I am honored to have been able to take care off sweet Pauline during her time at the Chandler house. She was a sweet soul inside and out! The love all of us had for her was equally divided. She will always be remembered as a family member at my work. She was our baby and it just wont be the same without her. If I could give any comforting words, it would be that everyone knows that Pauline passed peacefully. As she took her last breath everyone was so comforting. We sang many songs to her. The one I sang was amazing grace. She just smiled and grabbed our hands. I know she is in heaven and we will all reunite with her one day. Sweet Pauline is now walking on streets of gold! Thanks to the family for allowing her to be in the care of the Chandler House. She will be deeply missed.
