Linda, Ronnie and family,
How the angels sing as God welcomes his precious and faithful child home. She's used her ticket now and what a beautiful ride it was to heaven. The day is coming that we will all see "Miss Polly" again. What a glorious reunion that will be. Our lives are so richly blessed because of her and the love and encouragement to stay close to God, that she shared with all. She will be greatly missed. Know that Steve & I have all of you in our thoughts and prayers. Find comfort and joy in knowing the she is home. May God be with all of you in the coming days.

I thought so much of Mrs. Polly. When my Mom passed away there were so many folks that I missed and there some that I missed more than others and Mrs. Polly was one of them.
May your sweet memories carry you through your grief. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
