I am so very sorry for your loss, Penny. Even though It has been way too many years to count, my 5th grade class will be remembered as my happiest year of all in public schools, and I owe those memories to your mother, my all time favorite teacher! I will keep you in my thoughts as you and your family go through this most difficult time.

Sincerely,

Al, so sorry to see this. Your mom was truly one of my favorite teachers. I remember she had a very calming presence in the classroom and encouraged the best from all of her students. I loved her and know she will be missed by you and the family. Will keep you all in my prayers as you walk through the days ahead.

I had Mrs. Hiatt in 5th grade at Davie Ave Elementary School. She was a wonderful teacher and so kind. Mrs. Hiatt had a way of making science come alive for me. I credit her with my interest in science to this day.

Praying for the family.

Dear Hiatt Family,
I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Hiatt my first year at D. Matt Thompson Jr. High School. Mrs. Hiatt invested in me at a time in my life when I was suffering. She had an open door policy for me. She took the time for me when I really needed love, acceptance, and guidance. She made such a difference in my life. I have thought of her many times over the years. I will be sending you my thoughts and prayers as you send her to the arms of the angels.
