    Dear Susie and Connie, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother. I have such precious memories of her way back when she was my 4-H leader and from church, growing up at Porter. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I was very sorry to hear of Miss Joyce’s passing. I think of her every time I visit the elementary school. She meant a lot to all of the kids there. I remember her very fondly.
