Mr. Hoover, I wanted to say how sorry I am to  hear of Pauline's passing . I lost my husband on Aug 27, it's very hard but we put them in Gods hands now. You would remember me as Mary Price.  I went to church  with you and your wife when I was a child. God be with you and your family.

 My heart goes out to you and your family in your time of mourning.

Claire Hershberger
If tears could build a stairway, and memories build a lane, I would walk right up to Heaven and bring you back again. My heart still aches with sadness and secret tears still flow. What it meant to love you mom no one can ever know. But now I know you want me to mourn for you no more. To remember all the happy times life still has much in store. Since you'll never be forgotten, I pledge to you today, A hollowed place within my heart is where you'll always stay.
Your daughter
Helen Johns

I have known Mrs. Hoover since I was a little girl. She was such a wonderful person to know. Alway so happy and smiling all the time. My heart goes out to Marlin and also his family. She was a pleasure to know and she passed her ways unto her son, Marlin, whom is just like her. A very caring person when it comes to others. God Bless her. She will be missed.  Love Lola and Ron

To the family of Pauline Hoover,

It's sad when we lose someone so dear to us, but God has his reasons for taking them back home to be with him. She will always be remembered by so many and never forgotten.  I always say, I have my loved ones tucked away in my heart, and there is always something thoughout my daily routine that reminds me of them.  I laugh and tears may come, but I feel good inside and know that they are in a place where there is no more pain.  Find your strength in God, and you too will find peace.  Prayers go with you and your family.  I am a friend who spent some fun nights with Beth.
Darlene Zimmerman
Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. I am sure your mother appreciated every day and evening you spent with her! (Not to mention the blow out birthday party you had for her!) I'm glad you were able to help make her last days on the earth great ones! Love You!

Jenn, Matt & Family
I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother.  Although words cannot heal the pain you are going through, just know that your mother had to be very proud to have raised such a wonderful, loving, caring son.  May fond memories surround you.

Your friend,  Irene
Beth and Rodney, May you find peace in your God to help you through  the death of your mother. You were there for her and helped take care of her while she was ill. She is in God's arms now and preparing a place for you to see her again..

Pauline will always hold a very special place in my heart.  Her and Jake were like another set of grandparents to me growing up. I will always cherish our memories.  Beth, she couldn't have asked for a better daughter.  You were there for her day and night for years.  I don't know what her and Jake would have done with out you.  Take care of "Pap", he needs you now more than ever.
