I just wanted to let the Springer Family, know that you have my deepest condolences. After I left my husband, my daughter who is a CNA at Westphalia Hills thought I should go to work with her to get my mind off of my life and work with people who needed help. Boy, was she right. It was the best thing for me even though my time there wasn't too long. During my stint with the nursing home I got used to a routine as did the rest of the staff with Pauline. I, like so many just loved her. She's a very special soul as well you all know. But, I really wanted to send my regrets as your family must endure such a profound loss. She will be missed by so many of whom she has touched. I am just one amongst many. I will always remember her. I adored her lively lively soul. Very Sincerely, Lisa Schulte
