Missy, I always liked your Mom so so much ! She was witty, honest, and smart. I remember when we needed to know the proper etiquette for some situation, we would ask your mom. She knew the appropriate way to handle every situation in a wise, polite manner. Thank goodness, we had her as a resource for our many situations ! Ha !

I will miss your mom but I am glad she is now with your dad as they had a very close marriage. I know they are both happy to be together again.

So sorry to hear of the passing of my 3rd grade teacher at Garfield Elementary in Zanesville Ohio in 1970. With her distinct light streak in her hair, she would always have the children all attentive at their desks, hands clasped together (like in prayer) & resting on the desk when she wanted us to listen. She was always so graceful & not a hair out of place. She touched many children's lives. RIP Mrs. Florstedt.
