II met Pauline at La Bahia Nursing home on the first day she arrived as a member of my mother's (Ellerine Dentler) dining room pals.. She was a wonderful person as I got to know more about her and where she had lived with her husband. We enjoyed coffee time especially when I brought cookies for the table to share. She used her walker with a note reminding herself what room she was in until the day when the aged succumb to the wheel chair and someone just takes you from point A to point B. She was quieter in her last few months when I greeted her in the hall. I will miss her smile and personality. I am sorry for your loss and pray you will find comfort in the stories and memories she gave others. I am sorry I am not able to attend, but will send prayers your way as the days change direction in now only to thoughts of Pauline rather then a visit. A friend, Ginger Dentler McGill.
