We are truly sorry for the loss of your loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was truly a very special person. Nearly 20 years ago, Pauline agreed to babysit our Jack when he was just 4 months old. She wasn't too sure about taking on another baby at her age (67ish). Thankfully, she did and she put him on a schedule, taught him how to shoot baskets, hit a Wiffle ball, and more. After he went off to kindergarten, she still made a point to come to his baseball games and even visited him at his first official job. ack and Pauline remained pen-pals, over the years, sending cards to one another to keep up-to-date. Pauline generously gave us a treasured gift of her time to help to raise our Jack and cheering him on for the last 20 years. We are grateful to have known such a special person.

She was a wonderful neighbor .. I'll miss not seeing her out on her back porch watering her planters .. always saw her Saturday night going to Mass .. she was probably the first car on the parking lot .. getting her regular parking space and her regular spot in the church pew .. she was a member of the "Sunday Afternoon McDonald's Club" .. sad to see her leave .. our neighborhood is changing really fast~~
