So sorry to hear about Polly. I still smile when I think about her geometry class at SHS.
Let your great family memories give you comfort. We are thinking of you.

Dear Simpson Family, I I was saddened to read of Mrs. Simpson's passing. I had her for geometry at Suffolk High School. She was the epitome of the true Southern woman with her gentle manner and refined ways. May the good memories you have of her sustain you in the difficult days and weeks ahead.

Henry and Mrs. Simpson have been respected icons in our community for many years.

Our community feels a great loss of such a wonderful lady.

My prayers go out to each member of her family & especially to her beloved Henry.

I am so sad to learn of the passing of Mrs. Simpson. She was a true Southern lady and neighbor mom to so many of us. My deepest sympathy and love to the entire family. I have no doubt Aunt Martha Spivey welcomed her home in her loving arms.
