Ms. Polly,
Oh no.. I'm really saddened by this news. You were so great & assisted in spoiling all the kids from Peter Pan. I still remember sitting in your lap for comfort on a bad day. You will be greatly missed. Mrs. Mary Beth my prayers are with you & I know God will comfort you through this great loss. Ms. Polly is happy in Jesus now. I know she will continue to watch over us all. I love you!!!
