Some people you meet have the ability to fill your heart with joy and laughter. They live their lives with honesty, integrity and a good dose of humor. Poola was one of those people. Though she will be missed by everyone; her memory will remain deeply instilled in the hearts of her family and friends. It has been a privilege. Thank you for the memories.

Love, Tammy and Donna

Glynda, what you posted on FB about the Lord calling her home for Christmas was so sweet. Picture both your parents in heaven now with HIM. We love you.
