    Sandra and Frank, I must tell you how many wonderful memories I have of your mother (& dad). Polly worked with Mother, & your parents & mine were friends & members of FBC. I loved them both dearly. Your mother’s sweet voice & smile, her kind words, as well as her love for others & her sweet spirit displayed a shining example of how a lovely Christian lady should be. I am sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers.
