Kathy and family, My thoughts and prayers are with you during your time of loss. Your mother was one of my favorite teachers- she taught us how to be citizens and to give back to others. She was a jewel. May her memories live on!

Kathy and Allen and family, I am so sorry for your loss of Aunt Ramona. I have such fond childhood memories of our families spending time together. I know your mom, dad and Stan are dancing around in heaven together. Much love to you! Your Cuz, Diane

Kathy and Allen, I first met your mother some 35 years ago when she taught at Rockingham. I was happy to discover that she was one of my Stanford cousins and we had a ball exchanging family history. I soon realized how much she loved her family and cared for her students. I know she is in a far better place and leaves a wonderful legacy for all of you to cherish. May our gracious Lord comfort and sustain you all.
Michael Perdue
