I sat in my bed with my husband late last night taking a trip down memory lane and I began to explain to him How my 6th grade teacher made such a huge impact in my life. I explained how I had to "walk the heart" to get out of 6th grade. That conversation led me to jump up and google her name and to my dismay, I was saddened to learn of Mrs. Poe passing away. Today My heart is still heavy, how I regret never seeing or speaking to her again after leaving Eugenia Hamilton in 1982. I never knew you personally Violet but you are the one I remember her talking about the most. I am so sorry for your lost. Your mother was truly a jewel! My condolences to all of you.
