On behalf of the Polozola family, I wish to express our heartfelt appreciation for the overwhelming support given to us during this most-difficult time. While our hearts are heavy with sorrow and grief, the presence, prayers and the wonderful memories shared by so many have provided great solace and mean more than anyone will ever know.

We especially thank Dr. Gerald Militello and the staff at Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center, and Mrs. Kathryn Grigsby and the staff at The Hospice of Baton Rouge Butterfly Wing for their hearts of compassion, and Bishop Robert Muench, St. Joseph’s Cathedral, the U.S. Marshals Service and members of the Baton Rouge Police Department, East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office and LSU Police for their tribute and service. What a wonderful community we have.

May God provide us the grace to give thanks for our blessings, serve and treat others with respect and kindness, and pursue excellence in our daily work with integrity and humility.
