You took the time to show your love through your visits, calls and picking her up and taking her back to Virginia with you so she could spend time with her sister.

  • Pauline was a very special friend of my mother’s for many years. I remember swimming in her pool quite a few years ago, when she lived in Fox Chase. She visited my mother, Eileen, just weeks before Eileen passed away. I remember Pauline was quite the crochetter. I’m so thankful my mother had such a wonderful friend.

  • Dear Kathleen,
    It was so good to see you at mom’s funeral Mass and I’m glad we had a moment to chat. Our mothers were certainly each other’s best friend. She missed Eileen desperately when she passed.
    I remember when their group of lady friends took trips together. And then, as the years went by, it was just the two of them left. I want to believe they are in heaven right now keeping each other company again.
