Betty Rice was my son’s teacher at United Cerebral Palsy starting in 1986 on Broadway and after they moved to a new building on 36th St. She was an absolute jewel and she definitely was perfect for her job. I can still picture her sitting on the floor with her kiddos and I still recall several things she told me about what Casey would and could accomplish. Casey is now back at UCP’s adult day program on 36th St and I have thought about her many times. We have never forgotten her. I am very sorry for your loss but wanted you to know what a special lady she was to our family.
