My thoughts are with you in this time of loss.  Pauline lived such a good life. I have so many good memories of the Mitchell family both through church and work with Arlan.

Pauline was a ball of fire a very nice lady. I I believe I know her best by the  most lovely and precious legacy she leaves behind.  
I'm speaking of the Karen Michell Davis and husband Gordon family and their precious children, Kelli and Ryan and Kevin and Lori.   They touched our lives by sharing Pauline with us and even greater is they shared a lifetime of love and friendship beginning on a simple playground introduction from a loving teacher. 

This family knows the Lord and loves to laugh and celebrate life.  My family adores you all. So very sorry for you loss.   Pauline is reorganizing the kitchens in heaven and she was welcomed with heavenly love.  
Love to all


Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Mitchell Family!  Much love from Gentiva Home Health
