    I just read of Mrs. Pauline’s death. What a long and wonderful life she had. She was a dear friend to my Mom, Pauline Philpot. They were old Skinem friends and phone friends in later years. Mom will miss her friendship and phone calls. At their ages, many friends and family members have gone on. Mrs. Pauline was a very special and gifted lady. I know you all will miss her. So will her friends! God bless you all in this sad time! Please find comfort in your memories with such a wonderful Mom.

    Sincerely,
    Brenda Badenhop
