My tribute to a remarkable woman, Pauline Peters
One of the few people I have known who has one personality. Whether she was among the elite or the very poor, she was the same.
A person who was a friend to anyone unless they did her wrong, then the friendship ended.
A woman who was able to take my children and treat them as her own, not only in public, but also in private. A person with an unshakeable faith in God.
If she wanted to do something and I was opposed, that was the end of it. Not many people can do that.
A woman who felt blessed to have a family and a home. She enjoyed receiving gifts but enjoyed more being the giver.
