TRIBUTE TO PAULETTE

SORRY, I'M REALLY NEW AT THIS AND AM TRYING TO TEACH MYSELF. FORGIVE ME FOR NOT DOING IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME.

THE MEMORIAL TURNED OUT TO BE VERY NICE AND I'M SURE IF PAULETTE WERE WATCHING, SHE WOULD HAVE REALLY ENJOYED BEING THERE.

THERE WERE PEOPLE THERE FROM HOLLIDAY PARK WHERE SHE LIVED AND ALL OF HER CHILDREN AND ALMOST ALL OF HER SIBBLINGS. THE GIRLS DID A BEAUTIFUL JOB OF ARRAINGING MEMORIES BY SHOWING PICTURES ON A SLIDE SHOW OF HER WHOLE LIFE, FROM THE TIME SHE WAS A LITTLE GIRL TO THE TIME SHE WAS A GRANDMOTHER.I DIDN'T SEE A FROWN IN ANY PICTURE, ALWAYS SMILING.

FOOD WAS VERY GOOD AND AND PLENTY OF IT.

KATHY READ A FEW E-MAILS FROM PEOPLE THAT WROTE IN TALKING ABOUT PAULETTES EARLY YEARS, WITH A CLEAR VOICE AND A BIT OF ANIMATION, SHE HAS A VERY NICE VOICE, SHE TOLD US SO. (DOESN'T THIS SOUND LIKE HER MOTHER?)

ANYWAY, I AM GLAD I FLEW TO DETROIT TO SEE AND BE WITH EVERYONE. NOW I KNOW WHAT SOME OF OUR NEICES AND NEPHEWS LOOK LIKE AND WHAT THEIR LIVES ARE LIKE. BLESS ALL OF YOU AND KEEP ON HAVING FUN, THAT'S WHAT YOUR MOM WOULD HAVE WANTED.

THANKS
AUNT PAT

Pat I fully agree with your comments of last Friday. The girls were great.I truly miss Paulette. I went to pick up Monica today and it sure was odd bypassing Paulette's house. Pat we sent your frame today I was told it should arrive in about 3 days.

Hi Aunt Pat,
I wish I could have made it to Michigan to see everyone and say goodbye to Aunt Paulette. I will miss her everyday! I hope we can have a reunion in the future. I created a blog and it is on Aunt Paulette's site.
Please say hi to Uncle Marcel for me.
Miss and love you both!
Krista

I didn't like the snow even when I was just visiting and it disappeared in a couple of days. For me the worst part of snow is the COLD temperature that comes with it.
