Polly was one of those rare people who was upbeat and smiled all the time. I always looked forward to talking with Polly (and a hug from Laurie Sue!) when they were back in Grove City. Laurie Sue, was a perfect reflection of Polly's kind and gentle spirit. May God give his great peace and be a presence to Polly's family at this mournful time.

I'm so sorry to hear of your lose. Polly was one of my favorite people. I always enjoyed talking with her. Even though she always called me Deb. Lol I always made sure to send her a copy of the Center Fold from church and always published Laurie's letters for all to read. She will be missed.
