    Paula I am so sorry about Pauline. I had not seen her in some time as I guess she did not get out any more than I did. We would run into each other and stop and talk about how proud we were of you girls. I enjoyed seeing you on TV the other night and your speech . I have watched it twice. Love you and Earl. I will be thinking about you all but do not guess I will get to see you.
