I was a student of Mrs. Lippy her first year at Mechanicsville. She was always kind and encouraging and even in later years, long after I was grown, she would inquire about me when she would bump into my parents around town. Teachers have a powerful role in shaping how we see ourselves and Mrs. Lippy always made me feel good about myself. Thank you Mrs. Lippy. May you rest well in the arms of God.

Kathleen took over my first-grade class at Mechanicsville when I had to quit in the middle of a year. I often wondered what she was doing after that and where she was. When I saw the big smile in her picture, I thought it had to be her. The few times I saw her she always had that smile and was happy. My sympathy to all of you.

its been awhile since we have seen one another but I knew Kathleen from the horse show world, her daughter showed ponies and horses with my son. Sending my deepest sympathy to her family during this very difficult time. May Kathleen rest in peace.
