  1. Loved Pauline and Fred. Lots of great memories, especially from younger times. They were “you can count on ‘em” kinda people, at the church or anywhere they were needed. I heard her service honored her. I hated we had to miss it.
    ❤️ To Mickey and Sherry and all who will most miss her not being around. May God bless you!

  2. We all know god has gained a true angle, we love you great aunt Polly and I personally will never forget you! Even though today I just learned your full name. You will always be aunt Polly to me! Fly with the eagles.
