My name is Nathan, I’m 42 this year and Mrs. kacho was my grade school teacher at st. Anthony’s in western St. Catharines. My goodness, this saddens me of her passing as she was legendary in my life. And in my eyes, legends never die. I was a bit of a hard case when our paths crossed, that may be why she was drawn to me, she never seemed to be the type to shy away from a challenge and at times I’m certain I gave her a run for her money, lol. Over time her heart and the love she poured into me, broke me from the person I was or who I may have turned out to be. I’m forever thankful for the Godsend that she was and thank you, to many friends and family that shared her with the many students she’s made an impact on over the years. That must have been tough to be that close to an angel and have to share her. I haven’t been in contact with her for over 30 something years but mark my words, she’s been etched in my heart since the first day she pulled me aside and opened me up. Forever grateful, forever loved, forever missed, forever remembered, forever mrs. Kacho. My condolences. Xoxo.

I am deeply saddened to hear of Saundra's passing. She was my teacher in elementary school at St. Alfred's and then we became teaching colleagues at St. James Elementary School. She was a dynamic teacher. May she Rest in Peace.

Mrs. Kacho, I am saddened to see you here. You are always remembered fondly with a smile whenever I look back on my childhood and time at St. James with you as my teacher. I have told many a story to my nieces and nephews of moments in class and things you said that have stayed with me to this day. You were wonderful. You would make us laugh and you made learning fun. You were firm with us when we needed it and I know looking back I was not always easy but you guided me to do and be better. You made me feel secure in talking to you about anything. I recall with warm heart our religious retreat to Loretto Academy and am still so grateful you convinced my father to let me go. I may not have seen you since grade school but your memory has stayed with me always and always will.
Thank you Mrs. Kacho. May You Rest In Peace.
My sincerest and heartfelt condolences to all of your family.

Sandra Torelli.

P.S. Please say hello to Mr. Hopkins for me too both his smile and now yours I am sure will be lighting the heavens while here in my memories, they continue warm my heart.
