Dear Karen & Family,
So sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. Harve & I really enjoyed her company, especially the times we got to take her to church at Christmas. Polly was such a friendly, witty & outgoing individual whose faith in God has surely earned her a place in Heaven.
Harve & Roz Bennett
