    Cousins, So SORRY to learn about my Aunt Polly, who was the strongest and spunkiest little woman I’ll ever know and an inspiration to me. Just thinking about her and that smile made me happy. We all will miss her. Love and prayers, Phyllis Ann

    Oh my—to her family and my dear friends, I am so sorry for your loss. Just like with Mrs. Macke, your mother and family was like a part of my family. I always knew where I could go for love and support. Pauline, will be sorely missed. What a void these two families were to me when I moved away. Whenever I came home it was great to run over and talk to them. Suzie really missed Bob and Pauline when she moved with us.

    i already give to St. Jude’s Hospital, so I will send something in Pauline’s name!
