I am so sorry to hear of Polly's passing. I know this has been a very difficult time for her family, and I want to extend my deepest sympathy to them. Polly was a friend and neighbor, and I enjoyed seeing her many times over the years, from school to the neighborhood to the ballpark where she cheered Mack on. I know her beautiful smile and warm and gracious ways will live on in Mack and Brandon. I pray that happy memories of her will help get you through this difficult time.
