  7. Pauline was a very dear sweet woman and mother that put her children first.
    She was a kind hearted person with love in her heart for others. I thank the Dear Lord I had the pleasure of being part of her family. She had a lot on her shoulders but, God helped her provide for her children. You see Some say there are living Saints among us. Well this wonderful woman was a Saint. Never, in my 56 years did I ever hear an unkind word about her, She was loved by many. And if you knew her, you would know what I’m talking about. Her Life, her love for others was unsurpassed. The 6 children she raised are the most wonderful family I have, I love them all very much and that has been since I was old enough to remember. There was not a visit when you didn’t get a hug and a kiss, She will be missed by many, and forgotten by none that ever met her. May God rest her,Soul. You will be greatly missed in my heart. WIth love and thanks for all the sweetness and happiness you gave to us just by being you.
    Aunt and SIster in law Pauline, May Jesus be by your side forever and ever. Love Always.. Nicky..

  8. My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Pauline Cristino. Our Father of tender mercies holds out a wonderful hope for Pauline (Acts 24:15; 2 Corinthians 1:3,4). Meditating on the benefits of Jehovah God’s hope can be of great comfort for this time (Revelation 21:4,5)

  9. As the time nears when families will get together and no doubt feel the pain of being without their loved ones that have fallen asleep in death, may you be able to find comfort through happy memories you all shared. The greatest comfort though, can be found through God and his promises for our future. Revelation 21:3,4
