I was so sorry to see that she had passed and I had missed her memorial service this morning. We walked the halls of Lancaster High School together 1999-2000. It was my one and only year teaching. She was helpful and great company as my fellow hall monitor. I would have been there today as I got to know her family through our talks. My thoughts and prayers will be with you in the coming days.
