I am sorry to hear about the loss of your dear loved one. Please accept my condolences at this painful time. Losing a loved one is distressing and as comfort is needed from family and friends, we have assurance from the Bible that "death will be swallowed up forever" at Isaiah 25:8. It is my hope your family will find strength to endure during the days ahead.

Hi Diana and Jack, Greg and Susan and Scott and Catherine, Just got an e-mail from Diane Carlson by way of my Church office about Pauline's passing. I'm sorry for your loss, but I am sure you are feeling blessings that she is at peace now. Bobbie and I talked several times about making the trip to Michigan to see Pauline, but time just went by and we never got it done. I am sorry that I have an obligation Thursday so I will not be able to attend the visitation/service for her, but please know that I will have you all in my thoughts. Please give my regards to Doyle/Betty also. Peace to you all! Mary Spruitenburg

I am sorry for your loss. I was one of the bicyclists she rode with and enjoyed her company. She was an awesome lady and I am sure she will be missed.

Pauline was my bicycling goddess! I told her all the time that I wanted to be like her when I grew up. She was a beautiful person and I enjoyed her company. My deepest sympathy to your family.
