I just wanted you all to know that I truly loved and admired your mother and grandmother. She was my 6th grade homeroom and English teacher at Bluff Park Elementary school in the early 80s. She was so kind and gentle - I even visited her as a student at Birmingham-Southern College - as an English major. I eventually earned a law degree. I would not have been able to accomplish what I did without her influence both as a teacher and person.
She was a lovely wonderful person and I know you will miss her greatly. If I didn't live in Houston, I would come today.
God Bless you and your family.
