|Let the memory of Pauline be with us forever|
"Happy 96 momma I love you so very much. You are my heart forever mommy!"
"Just want to say I love you and miss you every day"
"Two years now I have not been able to see you touch you talk to you. It was truly a blessing to be able to see my Mom and know what she was thinking. I am still having a hard time since you have left, however God Almighty has come to help and ease the pain. To know you was to love you because you were certainly all about love. Smart than anyone I knew with just a 9th Grade education. God fearing Lady, and did not cease telling us that Prayer answers everything. Yes it does mommy! I love you and as long as I live I will forever call your sweet precious name. Pauline Francis Williams Park. Your Namesake!!!!"
"It is almost your birthday and I will have to take care of your area. I love you so much and miss you so much my love. Your name sake Paulette"
"I love you! Miss you so so much my dear mom,"
"It is getting close to your birthday and I just hate everything
And all holiday! Without you if is just not the same and will never be my love. Miss you so much it hurts
"Yesterday was 2 years and 2 months since you left me, i still have some clothes that i wash and put away neatly. Oh yes I have one of your slips. You use to always look for your slips. Sometimes Gerald and I would throw so much stuff away of your we thought was junk. She should not have done that but we did. I love you from the bottom of my heart and miss you so very much. There is not a day goes by tht I don't think about you. Your namesake, Paulette."
"WELL TODAY HAS BEEN ONE OF THESE TERRIBLE DAYS FOR ME. I WANT TO SEE YOU AND TOUCH YOU AND I CAN'T. I WANT TO COMB YOUR HAIR LOOK INTO YOUR EYES PAINT YOUR TOES CLEAN YOUR NAILS, I CAN'T. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE MOST ANXIOUS MOMENTS THAT I NEED TO TURN TO GOD FOR COMFORT. THIS IS A VERY BAD DAY."
"I just want to say I love you think about everyday, Mother's Day is coming up and it makes me so sad you are not here I really love you my beautiful mom, I truly wish I could just see you laugh or cry or just being my mom! Will talk to you again soon,"
"I love you! Just wanted to say that!"
"Momma my love, i think about you all the time. You are never far away from my mind. I thank the Heavenly father everyday for you. You put us on the right track to knowing him and what was right and what was wrong. Momma you are the best mother ever. I love you with all my heart!!! Your namesake, Paulette."
"Moma, it is 5am, and I have you on my mind. I had another dream, and you were there. I can not remember things said, but seeing you, talking to You, let me know you are still with me, with us, as you always were. I have so much running through my mind, I can't quite find the next thing to say. I been finding how much you and Paulette favor in your younger years. That has been a joy for me, in trying to find joy. With this depression, I have had the toughest 3 years of my life. When I cry, I remember how much you headed loving tears, your heart for all was so active in feelings.
I truly believe that times when I cry, I think my siblings are doing it at the same time, sometimes. One thing for sure, in loosing you and Gail, we have found a deeper love for each other. Loosing you two, in sight only, has made us care more for one another. Me and Gerald have some type of misunderstandings, but my love for him does not waver from it. Coming up, we had our ups and downs, and we made it through them. Today, we hurt in unison, because our hearts are of togetherness that only we could have, missing You So much.
We talk on Facebook, and it is easy to see that we are Strong, together. I don't think any family on there communicate together as we do, your kids, Grand kids, and even Great Grand kids. Me and Mimi and poppy, we have laughs together about some of the things they found so funny you would do. Their memory is so sharp! We enjoy that laughter together, and that is one of the best times of my days. Sometimes we watch Martin together, and I think of how much laughter you got from seeing that Picture.
As you can see, I go up and down in my thoughts. Never with any consistency of either. I Love a You Moma! I will continue to see You from here on and even when the Lord call for me, God Grant it for All Your Namesake.
From God, Blessing You and Daddy, we are Many, and We are Strong!"
"I love you momma and miss you so!
Your namesake Paulette."
"Was gonna put daffodils on your grave today for it is exactly 2 years today you were laid to rest. I will place them there hopefully tomorrow. I want them to bloom every spring. I will be there."
"I love you Momma with all my heart. When I look up at the sky, I think of you. I know you're watching over me and the family. You are not gone, you're sitting right here in my heart, and with knowing that, I know I'll be oKay! Until I see you again.
I know I'm doing you proudly.
Love and miss you dearly!"
"I always seem to not like the Church Song saying, "one of these days, you gonna look around, and I'll be gone". I would watch my Mother as she would get deep into those words. My mind thought, I never won't to see this day. Young, a Pure Moma's Boy, I wanted to know before going to Church if that song was going to be sung. Times, I went, times it caught me off guard.
In the Now, the song is a Truth in my Mind. I don't look around, but I know. She has left us, and even in remembering all she taught you, you can't hear the voice with it. A sadness like no other comes upon you, and you can never deny the Strength of the Downward fall inside your Heart. I get a burn in my eyes, and the tears do not extinguish it. You remember the Comfort that has been lost, forever. I Man up, then Man down, up, down, up, down, looking for up, but I get a time where my mind is tired.
Night time fall, and I ask that You be there in my dreams, that you be speaking to me. I need to hear your Voice. God Grant it so, sometimes. The time has shown that you were chosen to Rest, doing All You could and then some. In your Nervous times, your deepest sorrow, you could reach her for the things you need to know and hear. You can know them, and still want it from Her. MOTHER'
It is true, that when You become a Man, you put down childish things, but when you Loose Your Mother, You become a child again, lost, looking for Her. Then, in Spirit, she's there, saying, I'm still With You in all you do, Right. I'm still there in all you do, Wrong. You receive my Yea, or my Nea. And You move on. Carrying Her on either shoulder, for a while.
Today, 2 Years ago, we Lost Our Mother, our Grandmother, Great Grand, Aunt, our Truly Best Friend.
Pauline France's Williams (Parks). 1951-2013, 1954-2013, 1956-2013, with Gail Already there to Meet and Greet Her Mother. 1958-2013, and 1961-2013. From Lincoln Park, to Alton Park, to every where else, we lost Our Queen.
So, then I say, that time came when You were not there. But, You instilled in us to know, Stand Up, to Believe. Asking...
Do You Believe that the Lord Is Coming? Do You Believe that Lord Is Coming, Child, I Want to Know!
Yes, Mother, I Believe that the Lord is Coming, and after His Royal Greeting, and All the Love and Happiness His Son Jesus said there Will Be...
Standing there, there, You Will Be.
We Love and Miss You So Much, "Moma"
By Sylvester Ware"

"I LOVE YOU!!!!"
"Paulette, I have a mole on my back, looks like a pencil eraser. I sent it to Tony, a picture, and his Boss, who had some removed, said it look like his, that were cancerous. Only mine is bigger. Little worried, but it is what it is. Got to go see a dermatologist. The guy said that they had to go deep to remove all of his. I will keep you up on it. I did not know until Poppy saw it. VA cancelled my app. that I had f or tomorrow, the 21st, and scheduled me for next month. Letdown there, because I wanted the Doctor to see it. Going to go to VA emergency room tomorrow night to see if I can get referral before next month. Not for you to get worried; I am not stressing that much about it."
"Thinking about you being with us in everything no matter the ocassion I miss you so much, I want to kiss you and hold you my loving momma!"
"Momma I went to church today and watch my sister give her talents to God just as you started her off on her way from way back when she was only three years old. I set there and I envision you setting there like you use to do every Sunday as you serve our father. I really felt good being there. Momma I miss you and love you so much!"
"Moma, just turned 56, like Paulette said, and out living Gail kind of bothered me. In only a few weeks is her Birthday, and would be turning 58. I always cry to visit her, seem to always get lost. One time I asked, where are you, and turned to see she was right there, like she was telling me. I see you both in dreams, and sometimes you talk. I have figured out that it be thinking of you both so much. Tears tell me I have lost all happiness. I truly believe that. I want to be, but just can't find it. My Eyes hurt. I have a mole on my back that has pertruded from my back that looks like a pencil eraser. Kind of scared. I go to the doctor Thursday. Thank God for Poppy, because I did not know it was there. Well, I hope it is nothing, but if so, I will do what is needed. I tell yiu this because I have always told you Everything. Like when you took me to Doctor for pancreas. Hpefully, you can talk to me in my Dreams. Love, Jr. Always, when I fear, You Appear."
"Mommy today is a special day and I know you were so proud when you brought your first son into this world. Today is your oldest son's 56 Birthday. Thank you for keeping your family together and letting us know what a family is all about we know because of the love you showed us! Until next time! Love! Your namesake
"Mom I have just read my brother's last passage and I was brought
To tears so touching but from his heart like all our feeling were from the heart for you, because you gave your heart to all your children you are one remarkablel lady that we will never forget! I cry everyday for the missing of you your smile your jokes your crazy dance you use to break out and do so much to try to get in in this message to you. Til the next time!"
"I see a heart fill with tears
You no longer here to fight my fears
I see a smile that long to show
Without You here, it has lost the glow
I see a dream that you were there
Only to awake with confuse thoughts
I look back at my latter years
and sometimes wonder if God will reprimand me
for the drunken disrespect I showed
So many prayers of that has never settled my mind
Then, I think of being the son to you you wanted
And hope that all will measure out
My tears show the love for you
My heart misses you everyday
I think of the closeness as a child
The Love You gave from first moment
on, all the while. God gave us a Great Mother
Not faultless, But So Sincere to her children.
Love and Miss You. Jr."
"My love my love for you is strong my thoughts are for ever with you.
"I love you!"
Was another bad day for me I need the presents around me and when I can not get it anxiety takes over. I will always communicate with you my love, I hope one day to see you again, with love your daughter Paulette your namesake!"
"Momma I talk to God today and ask him to keep me strong I know that he will for he gave me you that you introduce me to him. You were a God fearing lady that wanted everyone to be happy. Not a selfish bone in your body. Thank you father in Jesus name Amen."
"I remember one time I got you some cokes and candy for your birthday! You loved cokes but you loved tea better! Love and thoughts of you always! One other things you did not like coffee and eggs!"
"Moma, I read where you wrote you 1st born to make it happen, and she has done just that. Me, I am still waiting to do so, but promise you, before we see each other again, I will, also. You trained us to do just that. Living in us then and now, we have the tools. You are Truly the Best Mother, Ever! God Given type Woman Solomon of the Mind, we can take a little of your teachings and make it. Love You Always, Jr."
"Momma i had a break down this morning. I should know by now that you are in the bossum of the lord, it is just sometimes these panic attack comes over me, I just can't help it needing to feel your presents. The powerful present of Pauline Parks. Please forgive me for not being the daughter that you truly deserved and I fail you in so many ways. I guess I will have to live with that. I love you!"
"Momma I remember so many things we done together
I loved doing things for you it gave me great pride just to make you happy! I love you!"
"Momma it has been 2 years since your baby girl left us Sandra Gail
Your baby girl is there up on heaven with you I'm sure! Tell her I love her and my thoughts are always with her and you!"
"Mom today is Bobby Birthday! He would have been 72 today! Also I know you to told me that His momma Almeda died on his Birthday when he we 13 years of age. I like documenting things. I just want to say that I love you and I will never forget you!"
"Momma, I love you so very much!"
"Momma I remember when I was in Elementary you would come over to check on me I did not like you doing that but you being you was gonna do it anyway. Well one day you come over in your Beige coat and you are a lady of a darker complexion, children in my class were trying to find out who mother was that. I was so embaressed although I should not have been but you know how children were so the teacher said this is Paulette mother at that time I think I was proud so long ago I can't remember but the point being you were always there for me. I miss you so extremely much. You don't know how much. Sometimes the pain is so unbearable I just want to run and not stop just keep on until I run into you. I try dreaming about you sometime I do, most of the times I don't. I miss you so much!"
"I just came back from seeing you! I love you mommy! Happy 94th!!!"
"Momma today is your 94th! I set here right now thinking about you thanking God for blessing me with you for 61 beautiful years. I think back on the times through my going to the first grade to having my first baby you were there for me and of course having the difficult three day birthing of me. I can never thank you enough for all you all done for all of your children. You are the greatest Mom ever! I can not talk about you in the pass tense because you are hear with me right now. I do recall your kindness to everyone you meet and to everyone who meet you came back with a a wonderful experience with you, you see anyone you meet knew you were a woman of God and a caring person to all. I remember one cold day when I was going to school you made me give my coat to a more needing person name Patricia Patton, I was very angry at the time and did not understand it but i do now. I remember going to school for the first time and I almost came up out of my skin becauses that was too long going without seeing you. When you finally came and got me I was crying right across the street you had to go pick up Cynthia she was crying! We wanted our mommy! I have experience negative things too. I remember one time I was in the park and someone came up to me and told me I was adopted! I was so devistated I ran home and asked you were you my momma because people say you are dark skinned and i was light skinned. You look me in the eye and said You are my daughter and don't let anyone else tell me different. She said your daddy is light skinned. I was so relieved. Just the thought made me so scared. You use to say I would not trade my kids for all the money in the world! I know you loved us unconditionally. You put us in church you wanted us to love God and you wanted us to participate in everything. You told me I was the Jesus in the manger for church. We went to church every Easter and said our bible verses. You encouraged us all to do God work in church, you said it was a gift that God gave us that we had to use. You always told us that prayer is the answer and God will answer if you only ask. Right now I am asking God for strength to get through this day without you tears trimming down my face missing you like the day I was in the first grade but this time I will just have to keep waiting until God bring you to me again. I love you with every single breath I take I think about you every single day. There is not a day goes by that I don't think about you talk about you everything about you. I want to personally thank the father God for sharing you with me for such a very long time!!! I love you with all my heart!!!! Your oldest and your namesake Paulette!"
"I just love you!"
"I love you!"
"Mom tomorrow is gonna be your 94th Birthday! I will have to say I never thought you would leave mo matter how old you were. I was so Nieves. I'm missing you every single day it seem only like it was yesterday, I still can't get over it. I cry every single day for my mommy! One day I will see you agAin with God will. Love you always,"

"Pauline parks the greatest mom ever!"
"Momma I an so sad tonight all my info of you is gone and I will have tom start all over again with pictures and everything."
"Moma, it still is so hard, knowing you're gone from our site. Hearing your voice, seeing your smile, and even seeing you when you did not seem to know we were there. Regardless, we never wanted to see you leave us. From day one of all our lives, we had you, just you, to always fall back on. I miss you so much, and I try not to cry, but I just can't help it, as I think of you. I love You Moma, and Give Gail a Hug and Kiss for us...Love Jr."

"Thinking of you often, the blow to the heart, felt daily. We love you Moma, Each and Everyday *"
"I love you momma!!"
"This is gonna be the hardest things in life I ever had to do is let you go Pauline F. Williams Park. I love you air you breathe, I worship the ground you walk on. I have many regrets of things I should have done, that are haunting me to this day. One thing I do know I honored you until you left and I will continue to honor you until I am no more. I just love gazing into your beautiful brown eyes. You see I could see you aging but beautifully with more black hair than gray for which I always commented on. It was the eyes that had me spell bound. I loved looking into your eyes. For 61 years I did this with no regrets, You told me how you brought me into this world. Thank God I had the tape of you telling me of those three long painful days to get me here and how you put your all into it. When you say the little white baby you could not believe it was yours, you sent me back twice you say and the nurse had to tell you I was yours with the high cheek bones in all, you took me in your arms and love me and was beside me no matter what, you were always there. When you left me my life was like an empty shell. I now know that God needed you there with him to make heaven a more beautiful place than ever. You made my life worth living down here showing love to everyone you met. It is now time for you to be pampered from the Greatest one from above. Thank you God for giving me this beautiful person, My momma, Love you Mrs. Parks. Your oldest daughter, Paulette for which you name me after you. Thank you for the beautiful memories."
"Today was the first day I put your glasses away because I was hoping One day you would put them on mines or just moved them to let me know you were near by but I'm sure there's a reason why this couldn't happen. Momma! as you can see we miss you so much but God had to take his angel home and One day we will be coming home with you. Tell God let you be One that holds me by my hands as I am coming home. I love you with all I have momma."
"Mother, there is never a Day we don't think of You. Our Hearts are forever filled with the Cherished a Memories we shared from our Birth to the Last Day we set our eyes on You. You left us with a smile on your face, a smile that God placed on your Loving face, letting us know that your mission on Earth was accomplished, and The Lord wanted You Home, with Him. With each breath we breath, each moment we have, we will Always know You Gave us All of You, from Love."
