One of the nicest people I have ever met. She was my daughter's Head Start teacher. We loved Marla from the day we met her. To this day Jase will say that was her favorite teacher. She loved all the children she had in her many years at Head Start. We grew a great friendship through the years. I will always remember her beautiful smile and gentle heart.
