Mrs. Sandin was my high school shorthand teacher. She was a great teacher and a friend to many of her students. I will never forget her.

Shirley was my typing teacher during high school. I was just saying yesterday how grateful I was that I took those classes! She was more than a teacher to me though. She was also a friend and a leader in the church. She was always kind and gentle, and a good mom to her kids. My thoughts and prayers will be with the family. She lived a good life, and for that I´m grateful.
