Condolence & Memory Journal


To the family,

Pauline was a wonderful woman she will be greatly missed but she lives on in all of you!

In the words of Albert Einstein, "Our death is not an end if we can live on in our children and the younger generation. For they are us. Our bodies are only wilted leaves on the tree of life". She is alive in you.
