Polly was a great addition to our exercise class at Lifestyle Fitness Center. She always had a smile and something positive to say. I also saw her at Lighthouse Point. A delightful lady. I am sorry for your loss.

I knew your mother from Lighthouse Point. We shared in Bible Studies. Your mother had many stories to tell. She was a fine lady. She always had a smile on her face. She will be missed. My deepest sympathy to the family.

To the Tillett family–our prayers are with you. Your mother/sister was a very special lady. On Sunday mornings she always had a smile on her face and always said hello to the children as she walked thru the fellowship hall. We will miss her dearly.
