I’m so sorry to hear about Mrs Poly and have so many memories working with her at NOMC. I enjoyed the cards and letters she sent me after retiring. I’ve kept them all as they were special. She loved all her family and kept me updated on events through the years with all of u. She was a great teacher in Nursing and oriented me to doing Supervisor when she retired. I learn so much and will always remember her as a special person and friend.
