I will always remember our talks at school and the ballparks. She was a sweet soul and loved her students. The only thing she loved more was David, her children, and grandbabies. She was so proud of each and everyone. I will miss her, but I’m so glad she doesn’t have to suffer anymore. Her presence will always be with those she loved. God Bless.
