I am so sorry to learn of the loss of your amazing mother. I worked for her in the office at Box Elder High school over 40 years ago. She instilled in me the proper way an office should be run and set me on a life long path of office work and loving it. I thought of her often throughout the years and was always grateful to her for her kind lessons.

Deanne and Gaylen:
Keep her memory alive, write stories down. Ever Since my parents passed away I have been writing stores about experiences with them. This helps with the grieving process as well, leaves stories for future generation to read. God bless you
