ADD A MEMORY

There really aren’t words to adequately describe Aunt Polly. My Mom and she were like sisters and called each that, when in reality, they were sisters-in-law. Best of friends, without a doubt.
Dad’s sister, they were ever close, always there for each other as children and that was even stronger as adults. . . treasured memories!
Her nieces and nephews will always remember her kind ways and voice and her ability to always have a laugh ready and waiting. She loved family!
To say she will be missed is a gross understatement. She is home now. William Wadsworth appropriately penned:
. . . Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting :
The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star,
Hath had elsewhere it’s setting,
And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home.

We loved her. We love still.
