  1. Mary & Kevin, and the Pauldine family, Sorry to hear of your loss. Over the years, whenever I met your mom (often with you, Mary), she was always very nice to me…and even when she was in decline (Lady’s Home garden, I think was the last time I saw her), she seemed to know me and smile. The loss of a mother is a sadness that can only be balanced by a lifetime of memories. Not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon you will laugh and remember all the very good times you shared.

  3. I am very sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. Pauldine. Although one could say she lived a long and prosperous life and cultivated a loving family- it is never easy to say goodbye to a family titan. My condolences to the Pauldine family & may she Rest In Peace.
