To the entire family, I know so many of you. Pollie was the sweetest lady. I will miss seeing her at Linda and Wilson Moore's with Judy sitting at the table.
I am thinking of all of you in your time of loss.

I remember going to church with Pollie and Ollie along with my grandmother Ruth back when I was little, I often had a hard time telling Ollie and Pollie apart so I called them both OlliePolly. Pollie was always very warm and kind, and you just knew she was a lady of Christ. She's in Heaven now along with my grandmother Ruth and I know they are having a glorious time, and that gives me so much peace.
