    Sorry so Laurie and Chris. I remember so many memories at your home in Durand. It was our go fto home after school and before our volleyball, basket ball and softball games. Your Mom always had that after school snack/light supper waiting for the Pittman, Laschinger and the Mathison girls. If only we could go back to those good old days. Love at all from Carole jean from Eau galle. Take care.

    Pauline was a very enjoyable lady. I loved visiting with her at family gatherings. She made it to her 90th birthday. I am sure that was somewhere deep in her mind before she passed. Now she is back with her husband and youngest daughter. Rest in peace. Fly high with the angels as you wait for the rest of us.

    Always enjoyed talking with Pauline. God bless her.
