Matt, Brad, and Whit, I wanted you all to know how sorry I am about your Mom...or Ms. Polly as I always called her. I remember her as the happiest person. She would always greet me with a hug and a smile. She was a special person.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. She was a joy to know. I used to love playing tennis with her because she had us laughing through the match. She had a wonderful personality and would brighten up the room. Take care and love to you and Laci. Karen Lowery

My thoughts are with you all during this time. It makes me sad that Polly did not have the opportunity to share her life with Sinclair, but I know she is watching over her. I pray Sinclair will be passed on her trait of being a strong woman. Polly must have been a great mother, as she made Whit into a wonderful man and husband for my daughter. Love to all of you.
