Aunt Pauline was such a kind and loving person.  She loved her family unconditionally.  Her eyes would light up when anyone visited her in the Nursing Home.  The COVID was so hard on her and the others around her who could not have visitors.  We know she is up there with the Angels looking down over her children and grandchildren.
Francis, Betty Ann, Tommy, Helen, Larry, Aggie , and Mike and children and grandchildren, we are so sorry for your loss.  You are in our thoughts and prayers.  We are so glad that you had her for as long as you did and that her mind was so good.  Our love to all of you.  May God Bless you and walk with you during this sad time.
