Polly was one you never forgot after you met her. I first met her at Skyway Bowling alley. Last year we met again at Missouri River Center. She was such a fun loving person.

Polly! God bless you! Cheers to a good life! We will never forget all the memories we shared playing pinochle and laughing together! Jordan, Cooper, Gigi & Polly had the best times when the kids were growing up! The many hours of backyard pool play and washing the van, to going to all the parks in town and watching the kids put on "shows"! We will cherish each and every memory we all had with you, our precious friend! Rest In Peace and hug Gigi for us!
We love you! Dirk, Tam, Jordan and Cooper
