Miss Polly always let me have my card scanned first before annnnnybody else in line. I always looked forward to seeing her and Miss Pauline every evening for dinner. :)

I was at Harding 20 years ago and as soon as I saw the name Mrs. Prolly a flood of wonderful memories returned! She always greeted you with a smile and was as kind as a person could possibly be. My condolences for all of the family. A true treasure she was.

I always loved going to the Harding cafeteria because I knew Miss Polly would be one of the first sweet ones to greet me with that infectious smile. She will truly be missed. I thank you, her family, for sharing her with us.

Blessings to all ~ Terri Rine

I've lost yet another person who I called family while I was at Harding. First we lost Uncle Jack and now one of the dearest and sweetest souls you'd ever like to meet Ms. Polly. I mean no matter how hard a day she would have had she'd always have a big on her face. When I was a student at Harding I ate in the Patti Cobb dining room and then would head to my job in the American Heritage as we called it. I would see Ms. Polly and . She was always there for us when we needed someone to talk to Or a . I will miss her deeply but I know she's taking care of things in heaven as she did on . R.I.P. Sweet Lady and .
