At the end, we are left with memories to help carry us through our grief. Our years of teaching together through some tough years at Marshall Elementary, top the list of my memories. Your smile, wit, and dedication to children remain fond memories for me to cherish. Renee, you now have a special 'Guardian Angel' by your side. Praying for friends to comfort you, faith to uphold you, and loving memories to heal your heart.
