She called us “Her Boys”, such an endearing term from a very special lady!
Like so many we will miss our visits, none of which were complete until Pauline ensured we had polished off two bottles of wine. We would chat and laugh for hours.
Pauline’s love of life and that for her family was truly something to behold. No matter how bad your day was, a chat with her always left you with a reassuring feeling and a smile on your face.
Our thoughts are with Kate, Suzanne and Emma, Rest in peace Pauline xx
Love always
The Boys xx

Pauline was irreplaceable, and also irrepressible - when I first started working at the County Council's Ruddington office, passing my interview with Pauline was more important than anything!

Her taps on the drawing board with a scale-rule would bring the office to a silent halt - usually followed by 'Malvin/ Nirmal / Dave - may I have a word?' - and followed with a 'look' that no-one could ignore.

But most of my memories are of laughter - a lot of uncontrollable giggling fits, and a woman whose heart was big, and whose love of life was a lesson to us all.

To Kate, Suzanne and Emma - my heartfelt condolences to you all x

Pauline was the most wonderful person. It has been a pleasure to know her. We met whilst she took Zak for a walk and I took Barney. Jane and I had been going round her house once a month for a long time now and we alway had such a laugh and catch up on the gossip. I will miss her so much. My thoughts are with Suzanne, Kate and Emma.

I would just like to put the following poem which has given me great comfort over the years:-

DEATH IS NOTHING AT ALL

Death is nothing at all, I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I, and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, that we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was, let it be spoken without effect, without a trace of a shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was; there is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well.

My memories are far too many to relate but I will tell a few of the ones that made us laugh when reminiscing over the 50 years of our friendship. When the children were all small we took them to Nottingham castle for an event. In those days you bought a ticket from the conductor on the bus. On the return journey Suzanne was allowed to hold the strip of tickets. Imagine our shock when the inspector got on to check the tickets and Suzanne had chewed them! Needless to say we went int fits of laughter as did the conductor so we got away with it.

On one of our bus trips we were on our way to Leith to see the Royal yacht and the bus stopped in Yorkshire for a comforft break. As usual when having ourcoffee our tongues never stopped . We had been given a time to return to the bus which we completely over ran and the tour guide had to come looking for us. We got back on the bus looking like a couple of naughty schoolchildren with all the rest of the passengers looking at us as such. Needless to say we giggled on and off all the way to Scotland.

I drove Pauline down to Leicester Forest East Shopping centre and on the way back, chatting all the way back Pauline asked if we should be in Sherwood Forest!! Not only had I missed J25 but J26 too. I turned at J27 and was so determined not to miss J25 that I turned into Trowell sevices by mistake. I then had to park up as we were both absolutely helpless with laughter.

Pauline was the most generous friend anyone could have. She was the most wonderful listener and I will miss her most for that and her company. I still find myself thinking I must tell Pauline about that so cannot imagine what it must be like for her family. I send them condolences from myself and all my family.

Pauline was a breath of fresh air, a kind and generous person with time for everyone. I often felt she was the therapist and I the patient as she always managed to lift me up when I saw her. I miss her dearly, and will always think of our afternoons laughing and putting the world to rights. Much love to all of her family at this sad time.
Pauline you left yourself in all of our hearts. xxxxxxxx
