I have many fond memories of Pauline We go back a long way. I met her before she and Tom were married. We both sang on the choir at St Sebastian. She had a beautiful alto voice. Some of our children were in the same classes at St Sebastian. Even though we lived miles apart and didn't get to see each other often, she was one of my dearest friends. Rest in peace Pauline. God bless Tom and the kids and help them through this sorrowful time.
