Grandma,
words cannot describe how I feel but I will try anyways. I am sad you are gone but happy your in a better place. The love and compassion you showed me and the rest of your family will never be forgotten. I will always remember all those joyous years Valencia and I got to help you wrap Christmas gifts and help decorate your tree. I loved playing Uno with you and watching General Hospital. I will never forget the look on your face when you met your great granddaughter Violet. You were so excited and wanted to hold her right way. Your love for children could be felt by all. You were always there for me and that is what I loved most about you. I didn't have to wonder if I was loved because you gave me that with every embrace. You are gone but not forgotten. I love you and miss you!

Your Granddaughter,
Vivian Goss

Our sympathy to all the family members and friends of Aunt Polly. Aunt Polly was the youngest of “those four Perry girls” from Lowell, Ohio. In my later years I always marveled at the bond that the girls shared for each other. Their life growing up on that farm was not easy, but it made them strong with their family ties. We (Komorowski family) looked forward to the Goss family visits every other year or so. The drives with all your family packed into a Volkswagen Beetle, to be traveling for a month was fascinating. In those early years when stationed at various countries overseas, the visits were quite special. Aunt Polly was such a gentle and kind soul to us. She was easy to be with and happy. The presents she and Uncle Art would send or deliver to us were special. Unique items picked from the places they lived at the time. Things that still hang or are displayed in the family house yet today!

It always seemed to me that Aunt Polly had a very full life. With all those “spirited” kids to watch over and care for, plus Uncle Art! Never a dull moment for her!

God blessed her and her life blessed us. No doubt she has gone straight to heaven.

Grandma was always true to herself maybe that was just my perception, but it always seemed like she knew who she was and was so comfortable in her own skin. I am so thankful I to spend her best years with her before her mind slowly started to go. I would watch how she would talk and carry herself, and in my memories she was so angelic. I do strive to be to be more like her; patient, calm, kind-hearted, a wonderful mother and grandma. She set the bar pretty high for us. Polly Emily Goss lives on through each one of us today. It was never goodbye but that I’ll see you on the other side. No one ever prepares you for the pain of loss like this. Now she’s renewed and perfect, healthy, mindful and waiting for us at the Golden Pearl Gates with our Heavenly Father. What more could we ask for? She’s in Peace and Home.


Grandma I Miss you so much and Love You dearly. Love your granddaughter,

Grandma
~Polly Emily Goss~

When I was asked to share a memory of Grandma, I was at a lost on where to even start to pick my favorite memory. It’s truly impossible task if you ask me because my childhood memories are just flooded with so many of them: from sleep overs with Capprie and Krystal at grandma and grandpa’s, hanging out and playing games with them in RV at Canyon Lake, Thanksgiving lunches that would turn into to dinners, helping her get ready for our Christmas’s Eve’s, Easters, or coming over to our house and cooking corn beef and cabbage cause mom would take hours cutting their hair and talking, but grandma loved it. I don’t believe a memory has to be simplified down to one single moment. As many of ya’ll know, I am hearing impaired and my favorite memory of her is hearing her sweet, soft, sincere laugh. When I close my eyes and think of Grandma, her laugh echoes through my memories as they flashback in my mind. I cherish my favorite sounds, and even over the loud craziness and all the chaos of our family gatherings her laugh still carried through everyone else’s. Creating the perfect balance of the Goss family. Grandma was always the perfect balance for all of us, she was our Rock, she loved so gentle, but firm, giving us the honest truth with a grain of salt.

Thank You Grandma! Thank you for always being there for we, and know that whenever I needed words of encouragement and love you were the one who could give them to me. Whenever I think of our time together here I cant help but laugh and smile, because you were always filled with such joy. I have only the fondest memories with you and will cherish them for the rest of my life. I remember when I was a little girl, (I am smiling as I am typing) we were at a birthday party and it was time to say goodbye and I said " com'on Grandma lets kiss goodbye the french way!" (I meant kissing each other on both cheeks, I was like 6 I think) and Grandma says "nooooooo, we don't kiss the french way" (she clearly thought I meant making out). So I kissed her on both cheeks and said "Like this Grandma, muah muah" We both laughed super hard! From that point on we always kissed goodbye "the french way". I love you so much grandma, and I can't wait to see you again! "Muah"

My dearest Polly. What a privileged to have known you and in taking care of you. We laughed, we danced, we sang, and played dolls. You were an inspiration to me in many ways and some I will never forget. Your hugs and kisses you planted on my cheeks will never be forgotten. Even for the little things I did for you. Thank you Mrs. Polly for all the precious memories you have left me with. Until we see each other again my lady. I will always keep you near my heart. Love you always

Oh what fond memories I have a Ms.Polly. She always brightened my day when I got to see her. Although I ownly knew Polly for a short period of time she blessed me. I will miss seeing her smile, hearing her contagious laugh, talking to her favorite baby dolls, and her eating her favorite ice cream. May you Rest In Peace Polly. It was truly an honor to care for you.

I could not fit all of my favorite memories into this post so here are a few memories that bring me so much joy. As a child I recall walking into grandma's house always smelling a yummy home cooked meal, fabric softener and freshly brewed tea or coffee. Countless nights we played uno, sipped hot tea from cute teacups, ate tons of popcorn and laughed at something silly grandpa did.
I loved our trips to the base exchange! There was never a time she did not get us (my sister and I) something from school clothes down to coloring books when we were small. Grandma taught me how to properly wrap presents. I truly enjoyed the many hours spent helping her wrap all the Christmas gifts she would buy our large family. It brought her so much joy to have the whole family together for Christmas Eve. The smell of wrapping paper till this day brings back those wonderful memories.
When life had us in limbo grandma’s house stable and full of love. She was the rock that so many of us needed to get through the hard times. She called it as she saw it but knew as well how to calm our fears and bring joy to our lives. She was small in stature but she could control big grandpa with just the stern call of his name. She had nerves of steel while we joked how grandpa would get easily frustrated. One time we laughed so hard because grandpa got frustrated with trying to bring the big Christmas tree box in through the back door so he threw the huge box into the house from the back patio door.
During my first year in college I missed grandma so much I called her and asked her to join me for lunch because I wanted for once to treat her to a meal at Jim’s Restaurant. We loved that place and she was so excited that I thought of her and invited her to lunch! She loved to listen to everything that was going on...good or bad. Thank you grandma for all the unconditional love and precious memories that I will never forget!

Love Always, your granddaughter Valencia
