I believe you were my 5th grade teacher at Carver in Odessa Texas(1970-1971). You allowed the entire class to have a Christmas party that help Toys for Tots.

They were the best neighbors anyone could ever ask for and our family loved them deeply. It was good to see Mary Ann again in the pictures...sure do miss those days of gardening and visiting. From the Huerta Family Joey, Alma, Tabitha and Joshua please accept our most sincere condolences.
With love, alma
