remembering the smile, tickling the ivories on the piano and most of all conversations that showed how much she cared for her students. When she struggled reaching them, she tried something else. A special lady indeed. Prayers up for you Donald, and the boys

My Dear Friend, your death has shattered me in so many ways I never expected. But I love the knowing that you've left behind so many children who learned love, caring, compassion, and exception from you. I'll miss your warm smile, the greeting and leaving hug, and our conversations. You have reminded me we live on God's time, not our own. So this is not good bye, but rather til we meet again.
