    I will miss visiting with Ms. Pauline. I enjoyed hearing stories she told, especially a funny one about some soup and her grandfather who traveled around teaching music. Ms. Pauline’s mother was a schoolmate of my grandmothers. I remember Ms. Pauline taking her elderly mother to Old Beech for Sunday services. I will always appreciate her for being a friend to my dad. She was naturally beautiful lady.

    I will miss you Miss Pauline. Thank you for your kindness . You’ll never know how much you meant to me. I still have one of the sweetest notes I’ve ever received after the birth of my first son- & after I became Regent of our DAR Chapter. You always had the most kind words. You will be missed dear lady. ❤️
