Not only were you such a great work were also such a great friend during my time in New Plymouth. You took me in and welcomed me into your family when I was alone and needed a shoulder to lean on.
You put up an amazing fight but your at peace now. Free to run all those marathons, drink all those ciders and dance to Bruce Springsteen like we did during the early morning openings we did together. Thinking of Ollie and Nigel and praying that they find peace in the fact that you were so loved and loved everyone with every part of you ❤

Pauline was someone that you could go to if you ever needed someone to speak to, she was so incredibly kind and her presence was always extremely warm and welcoming like a second mum. A long battle you fought and now you no longer have to suffer the pain. An angel has been gained you will be missed Pauline lots of love Chandre xxx

Chandre Millar ( 08 Jun 2020 )

Sometimes I feel that some people get dealt a shit card & in Pauline's case this is very true
She has battled bravely for an extende period of time as the fighter I have always knew she was.
As a friend and neighbour we had a wonderfull friendship developed over the years which continued when we moved houses
I loved her frank discussions which always were honest & left no stone unturned.
My family will miss her to a massive extent & we like to extend our thoughts to Nigel, Ollie & Russell
