Shannon was such a caring individual with an infectious smile. I will miss seeing her smile and lighting up the faces of all those she worked with and for. God bless her family, may God give all of you the peace that surpasses all understanding in Jesus's name, amen.

Darrin was such a sweet boy in class. His ear trick cracked me up and brought a smile to my face. I will greatly miss him in the elementary music room. I pray for God's peace for his entire family during these very hard times.
