Sam and David and your families, Miss Polly was such a special lady. She always seemed to have a smile for everyone. I know that all of you will miss her. Miss Polly did love her grandchildren so much, and there was more to love when the great children started to arrive! All of you were very special to her. May the wonder memories of her be with you always! Jane Anderson

Sam, David and family. Your Mom was one of the dearest ladies I have ever known. She had a beautiful smile and such a warm personality. You were so blessed to have her in your life. Prayers are coming your way to help you through this difficult time.

I loved watching the planes built and playing on the pinball like machines. Polly P was a great lady.
