Dear Polly and all, Sympathies to all for you mom leaving earth,but joyfulness for her Heavenly homecoming. Also her passing is the first one I have ever responded to in this way. When Brinda Griggs told me you mom passed at church today I said I have got to start looking at obits, So this is my first one. We talk about you often when I go out with the girls on tues night when the Catholic girls come down to do the church service at the care center. We hope to come down to your place. I will try to go with them. Love you old friends. Marilyn G. Anderson
