You have our condolences in the death of your daughter, & sister Pauline. May the memories you have of life with Pauline bring you Peace & Comfort all these days. Since I attended Notre Dame I knew Pauline, as she was also my classmate, Duane'a sister. She was a sweet young gal to visit with in those days. A special sympathy to you Duane & Mary both. God Bless you Mabel, it is so sad & difficult to have to bury a child. Prayers coming for the families of Pauline.
