I was so sorry to hear of Pauline’s passing. She was a kind and gentle Lady. I was pleased to have know her for the last six years. We were Mah Jonng players and we did have some great games and times. I will miss seeing her beautiful smiling face. I’m sending lots of praryers for your family and remember she will always be with you.
Pauline enriched my years at the Village from the beginning more than seven years ago. She often was hiding pain with her silence.
Even through her most recent months we could always exchange a smile and a hug. She will be missed. Her family must be comforted by the knowledge that she never lacked for their devotion.
Ms. Carroll; Thank you for your kind words of my mother, Pauline Reynolds. The family does miss her, but she left with us many loving and happy memories to fill the empty spot within our heart.
