When asked the security question What is your favorite teacher it is one I can always remember it's Mrs. Smith. I think of her often especially when I get to the end of a chapter of a book I am reading and it is so good I cannot stop I think of Mrs Smith. She would read to us every day after lunch my favorite was The Secret Garden she would read us one chapter a day and we would beg for just a little more some days when everyone would behave and do their work she would surprise us with another chapter. When she finished a book I would hurry to the library to check it out so I could read it all the way through. She passed her love of books to me and it makes me happy that she was still reading, I will always wonder if her one chapter rule was intended to make us love books and if it was it worked. I thank her family for sharing her with all her students and I am so sorry for your loss.

I remember riding in the backseat of their Buick as a child and the anticipation of a visit from Aunt Jo and Uncle Clyde when they would come to visit Pap. Such a beautiful woman with a beautiful soul now forever cradled in God's care.
