"This is how I show that I care.  When she was teaching me reading, math and English she was good at what she did.  When I would walk into the Star Learning Center she was the humorous lady behind the desk.  So fun and kind.  She would make sure that students would study.  Without a doubt in my mind she helped me achieve goals along with other teachers in the Star Center.  I enjoy learning."

May God be with all of you during this sad time."

There has never, & never will be, anyone else like her.  You're in my thoughts & prayers.  WITH ALL MY LOVE..."
