To the Family of Polly Woods,
I want to thank you for sharing Polly with me. I worked at Beaumont as the nurse manager on the Forbes neighborhood until August. Polly was a very special lady. She was so intelligent and very proper. She once told me how she had attended college. I was always so impressed by her. She never had a bad word for anyone. I really loved your mom. I want to express my sympathy and let you know that I am grieving with you at her loss. Just know that she was special to me as well and I appreciate your sharing her with me, she has impacted my life in such a beautiful way.
All my sympathy
Sue Mugford
