Sheila & Dale Merritt

I am so sorry to learn of Ms. Pauline passing away. We both worked with Jake at the Sheriff's Dept. & also knew Ms. Pauline. We had been to the house to visit with them some & enjoyed each time that we went. She was such a sweet person as was Jake. I still miss him. We are thinking of all of you at this time

I remember Pauline as a sweet little girl (with braids) in
first grade class at Kinsaul School about 1938.
I saw her from time to time for many years around Hartford.

I know she will be Greatly missed by her many, many
friends and family around south Alabama.

She made the world a better place!
