  1. Pauline has always meant so much to me. She is my cousin that I loved and respected for she was so honest and forthright in all she did. We had some wonderful times together, they will be beautiful memories for me, even though I will miss her.

  2. We’re neighbors. While I didn’t visit much, when I did Pauline and I always had fun talking politics. She was a nice lady and I’ll miss seeing her in her yard and waving to me when I passed her house.
    Due to a prior unavoidable commitment, regretfully we will be unable to attend her services on Wednesday. Our condolences to her family and friends who will undoubtedly miss her even more.

  8. Pauline was such a wonderful woman. I will miss her so much. So many of my good memories growing up have Miss Pauline in them, especially when she would sit at the creek with me and Bethany and Bubba while we played down there. I love her so much and she meant so much to me.
    I’m so sorry for everyone’s loss.
    If there is anything I can do please let me know.

  10. Pauline will always be fondly remembered as a strong and beautiful person, a unique individual that will be sorely missed.

  11. Dear Children:

    I can’t tell you how much your mom meant to me. My dauther, Bennie, and I always looked forward to our summer visit with Pauline. We always found something to laugh about. Both of us will certainly miss her and our trips to NC will never be quite the same. Her passing has left an incredible hole in our hearts. We are thinking of all of you during this most difficult time.
