Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. - Matthew 11:28

Vick Sr. and they married November 16,1947, in Rockwall County. Polly and Garland had two sons, Garland S. Vick Jr and Ricky Lynn Vick and the family continued to live in Ennis. Polly and family were faithful and dedicated members of First Baptist of Ennis.

Polly had a tenacious love for all animals and all strays were welcomed in and soon became hers. Her family knew as a younger girl Polly had a pet opossum named Sammie and from there, she had countless pets. After her husband’s death in 1976, Polly’s beloved dog, Buddy, became her dedicated companion for many years. They enjoyed going to the park, car rides, long walks and watching westerns together.

Polly was preceded in death by her mother, Iva E. Madewell; father, Sanders Lee Madewell; two brothers: Sanders Lee Jr and Douglas Madewel; two sisters: Ivon Meador and Iola Mc Donald; her first grandchild, Eric Lynn Vick and her special nephews, Garry Ray and Jim Meador and S.L. Madewell Jr.

As David said about his confidence in God’s grace:

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd: I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely, goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
