What a wonderful and caring neighbor she was! She enjoyed receiving the fresh organic produce we would bring she and Mr. Wells from our farm. She also gave us many things as well, like her old living room couch set, but it was very new to us. I am so honored to have known her for 11 years, since we moved into the neighborhood: Pauline "Polly" Wells, my husband and I will miss you dearly." Thanks for passing through our lives. We will continue to drop in every now and then to check on Mr. Wells.
