Thank you for being my 7th grade teacher at High Point Elementary School in the 1960's. Your stewardship of my mind and education as a young student in Sandy Springs, Georgia, was instrumental in the person I am and family I have today. Good memories and prayers go out to you and your family! God bless you!

Mrs. Landis was a constant in my life as a youngster and an inspiration of intelligence, discipline and friendship. I will always cherish that she was the last person to witness my mother’s passing in 1999 and her very clinical but loving description of the the event. Love to Steve, Allen and Ouida, and your families as you process this momentous passing of a truly strong and inspirational woman!

Love always! Kathy C. Olson
