    Sheila & family, My heart goes out to all of you during this time. I have lots of good memories of Aunt Pauline. She was always so sweet to me. And she had such funny stories to tell of growing up. She and Mom would laugh and laugh about some of their shenanigans! Love you and keeping you all in my thoughts and my prayers. Love, your cousin, Debbie

    Sheila, Terry, Jamie, Praying you feel Jesus' arms of comfort surrounding you during this difficult time. Your mother was always sweet and kind to me, that is how I always remember her. She never lost her hillbilly accent; I loved to hear her talk and laugh. She is free now, praise be to Jesus. With fond thoughts of you all and sending love, your ol' cousin down in Birdseye
