I loved Mrs. Polly and thought she was a unique and special lady, wife and mother. She welcomed me in her home as a child and created such a pleasant atmosphere for us to be the "teenagers" we were. The Ragans have always been like a second family to me and she will always hold a special place in my heart. I love you all.
