To Priscilla, Lyndon and your families. I had the pleasure of visiting with your mom recently and I just want you to know that she was always very excited and proud of you and your accomplishments. She loved your children dearly. She loved being a teacher and loved her students. She tried hard to teach me cree and would laugh when I would get the words wrong or mixed up. I will miss her dearly, but I know the angels will welcome her home with open arms. May she Rest In Peace.
