To .Mrs. Aaron and the Lane family ,my heart is broken your loss is my as well.Mrs.Aaron was a wonderful person first and a great teacher. I know she had a lot of favorite students but I was her first when she was a freshman tea her in the summer of 1972 she was my homeroom teacher for 2 and a half years when I would act up she set me in front of her desk so act up a lot. so she finally relived .what I was doing and assigned me the first desk in front of hers and my behavior improved and we were both happy and successful, God Bless. She went out of her way to protect me as well I remember once I was in the hallway and licked my tongue at Mrs. Armstrong class who was a senior teacher and .Mrs.Armstrong was giving me a hard time, but Mrs.Aaron came to my defense and told her I was her student and she would take care of me and she did she gave me some candy. Lol
She would also spend time with me by allowing me to take her yard a d paid me $ 5.00 that was a lot of money in the 70s for a poor like myself. I will always love your mother daughter sister and grandmother. Rest in peace Mrs.Aaron.
