    Pauline’s children and brothers:

    She sure was a special cousin and even though I didn’t get to know here till we started the Haraway reunions, she was one I always looked for among the crowd. And most of the time several would already be around her after she was confined to her wheelchair because she was such a cheerful, bright woman; so full of life and seemed to enjoy every minute of it. I will be thinking of her as you lay her to her final rest and remember her as not only a cousin, but also a friend. May your sorrows soon be turned to special memories of your times together.

    Dear Pat and family,

    It is with a very heavy heart that we send these words of love. Your mother was always so good to the little ones that were in your care – she always had a treat of gum or candy for them. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

    I remember how good she was to Jonathan and all of the little ones in daycare. She always had gum or some small treat for them. Just know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I am praying that you and your family will be recipients of much comfort from caring friends, church members, and God Himself.

    2Co 1:3-4 NASB Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, (4) who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
