Donny was my best friend growing up on Gregory Street. I spent a whole lot of time at his house and was always very fond of Polly. The last time I say her, she was a volunteer at Wesley Long hospital. She had to have been in her 80's. I am glad she had a long full life and is now with Jesus.

It was with Great sadness to learn of the passing of Aunt Pauline. I know she was of strong christian faith & had 92 wonderful years on Earth , but now has moved on to Heaven . I have such fond memories of our family trips to see Grandmother & Grandfather Mitchell in Reidsville , and that would always include seeing the Morton family as well as other Aunts & Uncles & their family's . Aunt Pauline was always so kind to me & our family when we visited , she left such a strong , positive impression on me as a young boy & I will never forget that sweet North Carolina accent . I remember the stories she told me about working at the plant in Winston-Salem and so many other stories about my Dad ( Reuben ) & their early years & being raised on a farm. She will always hold a special place in my Heart . Our Heartfelt Condolences The Mitchell Family Stephen ,Gloria & Sophie , Grace Orange Park , Florida

Aunt Pauline was one of the strongest woman Ive ever known... She had the prettiest smile and a twinkle in her eyes back in earlier times...Maybe why she fought hard to keep going these last several years...Thoughts and prayers to her dear daughter Bobbie and son Donnie...Peace and Love to my Aunt and those who loved you...Linda Mitchell
