Many hugs and prayers to all of you as you celebrate your mom's many heart prints! Mrs. Shober was my very favorite teacher as she was my first teacher, my Kindergarten teacher, at Miller Park School. She left many heart prints on me over 50 plus years ago. Thank you for loaning her out to be make lasting impressions on so many over the years.

Much love
