Dear Pauline and family:
I just heard of your passing, and am saddened at the loss of my eldest Irish cousin in Canada. You are resting comfortably now, at peace, and are surrounded by your mother, and many others who touched you. Daddy always said you had such strength and courage. God bless you.

To Joanne and Michael,
Pauline was always very good to me and through her stories I got to know more about John as a young person and about her mother, Josephine. She met my mother many years ago, spoke highly of her and always asked about her which I appreciated. We are very sad and are thinking of you at this sad time. Sheila Bjarnason

Dear Pauline and family & friends,
I will really miss the way you made me chuckle and smile during our phone conversations over the past several years. I will also miss the opportunity to steal a smoke from you during our visits, and sharing family stories and your easy-going perspective on life. You had good wisdom about people and life in general, and a streak of mischevous fun. You also had surprising strength despite your health problems, and you were a great breast cancer survivor with a positive attitude. Sheila will miss you, too - she said you had the best sense of humour (the only sense of humour!) in the family.
My best memory of you is our trip to Ireland in 1988, where you were the navigator on those windy, narrow Irish roads as I was learning to drive on the left - I'm surprised we both survived. We saw some wonderful scenery, but the best part was being treated like royalty by our long-lost Irish relatives. It's one of the best times of my life, and in yours too, I'm sure.
One great privilege that we both shared was being brought up by our mom, Josephine, and I hope she still exists somewhere to welcome you back with loving arms.
I will always remember you,
Love John

Dear Pauline,
So you have gone home to the Lord. I know that you are at peace now because my heart is peaceful with my thoughts of you. I am happy that you were able to make the Sign of the Cross twice for Father Saplagio when he gave you the Sacrament of the Sick last week
I remember Mom and Dad saying that when you arrived in Montreal - you pointed to Frances and said, "Ah, a wee waine on the potty." Over the years we grew in sisterly love until you joined the Air Force. Then it was a long distance communication and we each went our own way, getting married, so we touched base once in a while. I was always happy to hear of your pride in your children. We had lots of fun in the country in the summer of '76. Michael and Joanne must remember the frogs and lilly pads in the yellow dingy and going to watch the Olympic runners on the highway in Vaudreuil.
I was always envious of your keen wit and sense of humor. Norman always looked forward to seeing you and another round of kabitzing.
Although I am saddened by your passing, my love for you will be replenished by my memory of our life together, our trip to see you in Kingston and the conversations we had on the phone in recent years which always ended with "I love you." R.I.P. Patricia
