Dear, Ken, Richard & Mark,
Words cannot express our sadness with the passing of your mom. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

To The Bado Family:

My heartfelt condolences on the passing of Mrs. Bado. I was a student of Mrs. Bado at Northgate High School in my freshman year in 1985. The memory that stands out is that she had each student in my class recite the poem "All the World's A Stage" by William Shakespeare on demand. I was scared, but I recited it with no problems. Because of her, she made me learn to enjoy just sitting down and reading a good book, which I continue to do today. May God give you peace during your time of sorrow.

Thank you Ms. Bado for all that you did for our district and most importantly, your students.
