Because of Edie’s generosity while I worked briefly at Polly’s I had a 30 year career as a flight attendant. She shared contact info with me while she was pursuing the same career path.
Thank you Edie for your generous gift! I love you and miss you.
My deepest sympathy to her family and beloved friends!

Edie was a true friend for a number of years when we worked together at Polly's County Market. I will always remember our trip to Atlantic City when that was fun to do.

Thoughts and prayers to Kirk and Keith and all of her extended family on the loss of a remarkable lady.
