I am so suddenly shock to only now hear of her passing in feb. Mrs. Vinge was my 3 and 4th grade teacher and I am now 39. I do not know if you will ever get a chance to read this letter, but I hope so.....your wife and mother was a very influential teacher to me and a few of my classmates. At that time in my life I had many issues at home, she made me feel cared for. As I became an adult I realised how important she made me feel and much she really did care for her students. She held us accountable for our actions, and gave me faith.
I am truley sorry for Your loss, and I know my words are of little comfort, but she was a great lady.
