So sorry to read of your mom's passing. She was a wonderful 5th grade teacher when I had her at New Bloomington. I remember that after recess, we had to come into our room and everybody had to lay their head on their desk and close their eyes to rest for a short time. I always sunk a peak because she would usually check her makeup and put on more lipstick! I really needed her when my grandpa passed away that same year. Prayers to all in the family.
