Not sure what to say?

I had her as my third grade teacher at Hart Elementary School. What a wonderful teacher and woman she was. She was my favorite teacher and still remember her to this day. She will be missed. May she rest in peace and love to her family.

May your family be blessed today as I remember our days at Toquam School. Thank you for helping so many students.

Althea will be missed so very much by us all. She was such a wonderful spirit with a loving smile and a heart of gold. Truly a beautiful person, inside and out! Sleep in peace my sister.
My deepest condolences are extended to the family.

I remember Althea and her beautiful, welcoming smile every Christmas as I hang an ornament that she made for me on our Christmas tree. I had the pleasure and privilege of working with Althea many years ago at Ryle School. My thoughts and prayers are with Altheas's family and friends.
