Do sorry for your loss. Both your mother and father were dedicated to teaching students and leading them into their futures. I have always appreciated what I have learned from them. May you find peace in knowing your mom is an angel now watching over your family. Many prayers.

She was the reason I succeeded in writing in college. We are alums of Kent! She made diagraming sentences like a puzzle. I loved her as a teacher.
