    Steve, you told me your mother had passed away a few years ago. I do not know how I stumbled upon this page but now I have a page to go to to relive my memories of her as my 5th and 6th grade teacher and librarian at Bryson.

    What I remember most about her is that she made her little 5th graders grow up–she didn’t give us a choice. Also I remember having to stay after school one day but had not told her I did not have a way home–she took me home.

    Your mom died a little more than a year later than my mother died (May 2012).

    Take care.

    You probably won’t see this condolence but know that I have very fond memories of your mother.

    One other thing to mention.

    I remember when your brother David died. I believe he had leukemia.

    Not only is “David” my name, but “Stanley” is my brother’s name.

    Take care.
