I will always remember Pauline! Long time neighbor and protector that always sit on her porch while we were alone at night waiting for dad to come home. She doctored up a cut I got,from walking barefooted at the park and I will always treasure the quilt that her and grandma Tatro made for me! May you RIP Paulene,love you!
