Abby and Gene,

I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet "Paulie." I have thought of her often. I will never forget how good she was to me and my "boys." She couldn't stop thanking Will when he helped her up the walkway on a slippery trip she shouldn't have made to the mailbox one winter day. OH and the COOKIES!!!!! Not a week went by without some DELICIOUS cookies or other baked goods. She was a sweetheart, and, although I know the last few years weren't easy, I will always remember her as she was for so long. May she rest in the peace of the arms of Our Lord.

Our beautiful Aunt Pauline is now in heaven with Uncle Gene. We love them both. She always said prayers for all who needed them, as we now say a prayer for her. She always had delicious desserts on her table when you came to visit her. She was very supportive to our family. Love to Abby and Gene and all the loving care they gave her. XXOO

She would always call me "Little Joe" and then would say "you don't mind that I call you Little Joe, do you?" I never did mind. Rest in peace, Aunt Pauline.
