My heart felt condolences Meg and John. I really admired your Dad and my childhood was blessed to have him and your family in it. I learned from the work ethic that he embraced and how it shaped not just you and yours but the whole neighborhood. To be honest, I just had a smile thinking about how, on Halloween, I walked into your 'haunted house' as a skeptical 11 year old, and, within 30 seconds, your Dad, Ron and Ed had me convinced they'd become zombies and were trying to put me into 'the machine' (iron lung). Out of my wits I was. Haha! I share this with the hope that this is proof of the result of a life well lived. Good memories. I have a universe filled with them. God bless and with love, Jon Johnson.

To the Ed Poll Family-I met Ed about 12 years ago at the Senior Center. He and 7 or 8 Veterans sat at the special Veterans table with a hat rack for their loved service caps. I decided they needed the American Flag on the top of the rack, so brought them a Flag. When several of the Veterans moved or passed on, the rest let me sit at their special table. Ed was a very nice man and would tell me stories about by Granddad Bert Brooks and his dad. I enjoyed his conversations and card playing along with John Jensik. Ed was a very strong and religious person. I am glad I met some of your family and Ed will be missed every day. Prayers in your sorrow.

I had the very fine pleasure of knowing and serving with Edward when he was with the Sheridan unit. I was a full timer in Thermopolis and had many meetings in Sheridan where he was present . He was always one who had good answers to questions and a very gracious man. So sorry for his passing

To.Meg, John, and all of Ed's family. We want to offer our heartfelt condolences on the passing of Ed. He was such a kind guy and my father in law Johnnies best friend and card playing buddy at the Senior Center. Johnnie said they'd been playing "double sol---50 cents a game " for about 20 years. Ed would always tell Johnnie to be sure and bring his money. Johnnie was so hoping Ed would be able to come back and play cards with him. Ed and Johnnie were in the group of WW II veterans that were blessed to be able to go on the Honor Flight back in September 2010. Johnnie cherished that trip and points to the group picture hanging on the wall. Hugs and prayers for all of you . We will truly miss Ed , his smile, and his sense of humour. Johnnie Gentry Roseanne Gentry (Johnnie's daughter in law)

Mr. Poll's family I was employed with the senior center and would see Mr. Poll there, what a nice man, always a smile and a kind word. I always enjoyed our conversations. He led a full life able to take care of himself pretty much to the end, how blessed he was.
