    She was my 6th grade teacher in Wheatland many years ago. She always was my favorite teacher and I had the opportunity to tell her that when I saw her recently. She was beautiful and gracious then– as she was when I last saw her. I am a better person for having known her. My sincere condolences to all of you. May God bless her memory.

    Dear Susan: Please accept my sincerest sympathy of your great loss….but I do believe God smiled when He welcomed her home, and said “Well done, thou good and faithful servant”. She must have been a wonderful Mom who will be truly missed. God bless you all now and in the sorrowful days ahead.
