All the children in Moody can thank my friend Cora Lee that they can read. She knew how to do it. Many times I heard her reading Pug to the little ones. Always will be in my heart.

Not a specific memory, just lots of "great" memories growing up in Moody with Jenna & Helen, staying at each other's houses. We had great parents. So sorry to hear of her passing. My prayers are with you all.

Few gave such love to everyone the way Cora Lee did. She saw in me something I didn’t even know I had, and I’m grateful for her. I teach special ed in large part to try and give others what she gave me! So many incredible memories.
