Sympathies message

  1. Sorry to hear about Barbara’s passing. Our mother [Marjorie Polley [Wood]] would be greatly saddened to hear the news. I saw Barbara last at Dad’s graveside at the Garden of Eden Cemetery in August 2018 when she gave me a card with a $20 bill in it. God love her.

    Regards, Peter Polley
