Sally and every one of Irene's relatives: Prayers and loving thoughts are sent to all of you. Sally, you and I went to school together whether you remember or not but I send you prayers now in remembrance of your mother. She was an awesome person and teacher. You were so blessed to have her as a mother and I considered her a teacher friend that I truly loved.

To Sally and all of Ms Irene's wonderful family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your wonderful mother and grandmother. I thought the world of her and always enjoyed the times when we would talk and laugh. She truly was a remarkable lady and enjoyed her life fully. Again, my heart is with you and yours...

I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. Stollings' passing. I worked with her at Logan Middle, and I will always remember her smile that lit up a room, that gleam in her eyes, and her warm charm. I already miss her.

Sally, I am so sorry to hear of your mother. Since I am now semi retired and spending most of my time living in Florida I will not be able to attend. You take care, and I know how you feel. I always enjoyed talking to her when I would see her. Let me know if I can do anything . I knew her almost as long as you did.
