My heartfelt condolences on the loss of your dad. Both your parents were memorable teachers, terrific people with wisdom, intelligence and a sense of humor. I enjoyed both of them and remember their marriage and early years together in Hornepayne as young teachers. In fact, I am sure we helped plan her first baby shower.
Gone too soon.
