I remember your family well from much earlier in our lives, and growing up in the same neighborhood. You were a great friend. I am sorry for the recent loss of your mother. I have fond memories of her and of your family. Thinking of you at this sad time.
Robert, I just got home from teaching late on Monday and read the email about your mother's death. I am so sorry for your loss. I've always been impressed by your dedication to your mother and I know she must have felt so blessed and comforted by your devotion. My thoughts are really with you and your family. Gary Sims
Paul and Robbie, I am so sad to hear of your mother's death. I have fond memories of both of your parents.
Mrs. Ayllon was a wonderful educator. She improved the lives of so many children by giving them the gift of reading and the love of books. It is with thanks that I know her legacy will be enduring.
