I loved "Mrs. Brown" . . . she was my amazing 4th grade teacher at Northwood Elementary school in Ames, Iowa! She was such a great influence on me that as a senior in high school, I chose her to be my cadet teaching mentor. Such a great lady!
I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She "mothered" me in so many way.to as I was growing up. She always had enough love to go around. During our more recent visits, she was animated as she talked about each one of you. She was a gift to me...to us all. Your parents and Skip live in my heart. I am grieving with you.
Dell, I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. May she rest in peace.

I am so sorry to hear the news. Mrs. Brown was a great teacher. I was in her 4th grade class in Ames (1977-1978). I was new to being a student in the US and she was wonderful in helping me transition and make friends. I learned so much academically but also about being a good person, a good friend, a contributor. I miss her. Please accept my condolences; I hope that through this sadness you will also rejoice in many fond memories of her.
My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family as you deal with the loss of such a special woman. Dani has shared wonderful stories about Ms. Brown. Her strength of character is already a legacy that Dani is living out each day. I am privileged to call Dani my friend, colleague and champion.
May you all find comfort in the days to come with memories and love.
