    So sorry for your loss. We’re unable to attend the funeral and dad is not in a condition to travel these days, but I talked to him this morning and we shared some fond memories of Pauline. As kids we always enjoyed the trips to Arkansas and time spent around aunt Pauline and uncle James. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you.
