I never knew that she was fighting this battle, but knowing it now explains a lot. She is and always will be Ms. Polly to me, as I've always thought of her with deep respect and gratitude. She taught me much about kindness, in and of itself, with never anything expected in return. She was one of the most truly generous people I've ever come into contact with, though we never met in person. I'm very saddened to hear the news of her passing.
Thanks for letting the rest of us know, Jo Ann.
This will always be "Ms. Polly's Hellebore" to me. Shared with me a couple of years ago, and blooming for her now.
