We are so sorry for the loss of your Mom. She was a wonderful teacher to all four of us Motz children, as well as friend. We have many fond memories of her, you and your Dad and always enjoyed being pew neighbors at Sacred Heart. May you find comfort in knowing she touched so many people. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you.

Deepest sympathies to the family on Mrs. Alt's passing. She was such a wonderful teacher that could reach even the most reluctant child. To this day I don't understand how she made diagramming sentences so fun! I have thought of her often over the last 30 years, and consider myself blessed to have had her as a teacher. She was simply wonderful.

Randy- I was so sorry to read of your mother's recent passing. She was one of my favortie teachers. I still remember how excited I was to learn how to diagram sentences from Mrs. Alt! I can still see and hear her walking into the classroom. She was a great influence on many of us that attended school in Alamosa. Again. my condolences to you and your family.

With deepest sympathy Randy. I remember your mom fondly and am grateful for the solid grounding she gave us in using/writing the English language. From the time I entered her class in the seventh grade until the last time I saw her, she always addressed me as Diana, my mother who was in Catholic Daughters with her and worked for the Alamosa School District too. Your mom will be missed by many.

Deepest sympathy Randy.........Your mom was one of my favorite teachers also. She made sure we knew our English well before leaving her class......Sentence patterning on the blackboard.....
