THE FIRST TIME WE MET IT WAS IN FLORIDA & WAS ONLY TOGETHER
10 MINUTES AT THE MOST. THE NEXT TIME WE LITERALLY SPENT THREE
DAYS TOGETHER SHARING INFORMATION & LEARNING SO MUCH FROM
EACH OTHER ABOUT THINGS VERY CLOSE TO OUR HEARTS. I WILL SORELY MISS HER!

I ONLY MET GLADYS TWICE. FIRST TIME LASTED ABOUT 5 MINUTES.
SECOND TIME WE SPENT THE NEXT THREE DAYS SHARING WITH EACH OTHER & BOTH LEARNING ABOUT THINGS CLOSE TO OUR HEARTS.
SO IT WAS A SHOCK TO SEE THAT SHE NOW WAS IN HEAVEN. I WILL
MISS HER GREATLY! IS THERE ANYONE THAT CAN GIVE ME SOME ANSWERS ABOUT KENNY?
ABOUT THE REST OF THE FAMILY?

Mrs. Sparred was a substitute teacher in many of my classes all thru my middle and high school years. She left a lasting impression on me. I looked at her as a very elegant lady that was soft spoken and very patient. She wore a French twist hairdo with her petite little frame dressed breath taking and smelled wonderful. I always admired her for loving her job. She didn't teach like it was her job but her passion. I always enjoyed speaking with her. I Looked at her as a well educated, taistful, unique woman. Beautiful as they come.
I'm sorry for her families loss and send my sympathy and condolences. Just know her memory will always be burnt in my mind and she will never be forgotten.
Sincerely,
