Mrs Caves was not only my third grade teacher but also sincerely my favorite teacher of all time. She was not only an awesome teacher but also such a kind and loving human being. I am an old man now but even after all of these years I think back to third grade and my heart warms thinking of Mrs Caves smile.

I would like to thank the family for sharing her with me and the untold amount of children that she touched and made into better human beings.

With love, Jonathan

Our deepest sympathies to you. Your mom was more than just a close and beloved relative, she was a dear friend who we enjoyed talking with and reflecting on experiences from years long past. We will miss her smile and meeting with her for our monthly gatherings, game nights, and celebrations.

It will not be the same without “Auntie Donna”! May God bless her.

Aunt Donna was a great lady and aunt. She always had a smile on her face and will be remembered for her kindness to so many. We are sure she is sharing that kindness with the Angels above.
