I just saw the passing of Pauline. I just wanted to say what a wonderful, funny and warm lady she was. I enjoyed doing her hair for years and learned all about her friends and family. I was real sad when she could no longer come to see me as was she. I have thought about her often and had wished I would have been allowed to visit her. She was sadly missed.

Penny, Ron & Virginia, Alan and all the Nichols family - My condolences on your Mother's passing. She was a great lady who shared her home and her heart and I am forever grateful to have known her. She used to tell me she was like her music -"an oldie but a goodie" and she certainly was - a true treasure. May our Blessed Mother bring you peace and consolation in the days ahead. Rest in Peace, Pauline. Love, Connie G.

Penny, Ron & Alan, I was sorry to hear about the passing of your beloved mother but I also know that her passing was a blessing for her and all of you with the health problems that she has had to endure over the past few years. I will always remember Pauline just like the picture of her in the newspaper, I thought she was a beautiful women, and I loved her beautiful smile, laughter and her warm personality. She may be gone from our sight but she isn't far away. I know you will cherish the fond memories that you have of your sweet mother, and the times you have shared with her. I'm sure she is having a grand reunion with her sweetheart and those who have passed through the veil before her. May God bless and watch over your family always. Dixie Martini & Family

I will miss your beautiful red hats, your big band music and the occasional opportunity I had to sing along with who ever was playing in your room on Sundays. I will miss your smile.

Dear Nichols Family, I was honored to have known your mother through my brother-in-law Ron. She was always dressed to a "T'" and with a smile on her face. She delighted in, and mentioned often, our connection with Morgan, and I always looked forward to hearing her memories and stories. I, along with everyone who knew her, will miss her kind and gentle spirit. May she rest in peace. Diane, Robert and girls
