My Aunt Pauline. I can't think of growing up as a liitle girl , a teenager, a young adult and a grown woman without Pauline being an important part. I don't think I ever knocked, I just walked right in. I'd yell, it's Joyce and go right in, always welcome. Pauline was a good friend to my mom and after my mom passed away, I was conforted to know Pauline was there for support. Aunt Pauline, I could go on and on but will just say, thank you, you are loved.

I never knew you personally but your daughter Donna talked about you often with great love. You will be dearly missed by her and her family.

Gram (mom) Not a day goes by that I did not think about you. I have so many good memories growing up with you and pappy (dad) guiding me along the way. You gave me so many recipes that you had made when we were growing up as kids and have kept them in my recipes and one day hope to pass them along to Gregory and Taylor. Over the years you have made me so many snowflakes and they are safely packed for me to display every year at Christmas. I have treasured them and will forever. You were always a strong woman and I know that I have those traits in me. I have been through a lot in my life, but I always get back up and keep moving forward because you always told me to that I have to be strong. I remember you the day Amanda got married and that is the memory I want to keep. Looking into your face and not knowing that was the last time I was going to spend time with you, I will always treasure that day. I loved you and always have and I think about you every day and missed you so much. But things changed and I could not go back. I will love you forever and see you one day soon. You are now with daddy and I know he was waiting for you. You have so much to tell him. Rest in peace and know that I loved you. Always and forever till we meet again your daughter Donna

Aunt Pauline, I will always be grateful God put you in my life. You were there throughout my childhood and teen years, a welcoming and loving presence. Then, as well as in my adult years, there was never a time I did not feel comfortable in your home. Your unwavering support and friendship of my mom reassured us that we were and would always be part of your family. I will remember and miss your home cooking (especially those scrumptious cookies and cinnamon buns), but mostly I remember your open and unconditional caring and love for me and those close to you. That feeling will be with me always. I love you, Aunt Pauline.

It was truly a pleasure to serve and care for Pauline even prior to Hospice care at the Village of Morrisons Cove. Many of our nurses also had the opportunity to work with her in her home in Broad Top. To all of Pauline's family, our deepest sympathies. You all did a fantastic job of caring for her and we are certain that she was grateful to all of you for everything you all did to keep her in her own home for so long. Please know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers not only today but in the future as well as you continue to grieve.
