Remembering Paulette

By Julian Wells

In memory of my dear sister, Paulette Wells Cargile. Born on Valentine’s Day, she was a sweetheart to everyone whose life she touched.

imageDeparted from our presence,

And yet, still so present

In our memories,

In our hearts,

In faded photographs

Preserved in time by her selfless labor of love,

In the character of two daughters

Who continue to grace us with her spirit.

Loved by all who knew her,

Missed by all who remain behind.

Waiting in glory for those who share the Savior

Who gave her life that knows not time.

“Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.” (1 Peter 3:3-4 NIV)

  1. I remember when I was a kid and Elaine and Teresa lived next door when I would come over Paulette and Zorro would be so nice to me and they heloed me deal with what was happening at my house. I always felt safe and welcome in their home. I miss them both greatly.
