    My heart goes out to your family because I know Polly was the heart and soul of your family. What a beautiful, kind and welcoming woman. I enjoyed the times I got to drink wine with her and while it was only a handful of times, it felt like I had known her forever. If Donna was your friend; Polly was your friend too! It was the best packaged deal I ever got! Love you Donna! Godspeed Polly…until we have wine in heaven!

    My dear friend , I worked with Polly at Eye Centers in Beaumont for years! We had a good time and we would always meet up at a dance somewhere! She loved to dance. I will always remember
    Our talks and her little feisty self. She was a great co-worker and friend. Rest in Peace my friend!

    Glen, Milissa, and family,

    I am saddened to hear of Polly’s passing. I have so many fond memories of her from when I was a young girl in the neighborhood when visiting relatives. May your memories bring you comfort in the days ahead.
    In the grip of grace,
    Beke Valencia
