Dear Joy, I have only now heard of the loss of your mother and must send you and your family my utmost condolences. What a wonderful, outgoing, and knowledgeable person and teacher she was. Her spark and enthusiasm in the classroom helped propel me in my desire to learn. I can honestly say she was the best teacher I ever had. You have both remained in my mind throughout the years as dear and special folks while the mile markers of my life sped by. Please take care and send her a joke from the back row from me! With deepest care and affection, Bill Hudnall

Joy and Ben, Our hearts and prayers are with you during this sad time. We feel honored to have been able to meet your mom and dad when they were here in Colorado. Your mom gave so much of herself to helping others. What a true inspiration! While you may get lonely for her, you are never alone, she will always be in your heart. Heaven received another angel. God Bless, Guy and Terry
