My deepest sympathy to you in the passing of your loved one, Polly. I worked with Polly at WTU for several years before her retirement and she was such a delight to work with. May God give you the strength at this difficult time....Eva Johnson

Please accept my sincerest sympathy on the loss of Polly.

Polly and I worked together years ago at WTU...there were always "lively times" when Polly was dispatching orders to those of us in the field. Everyone liked her.
