    Al- I was so sorry to read of the passing of your mom. I remember her as a teacher at Davie Avenue when I was a child and always thought she was so sweet and so pretty. Praying God gives you and your family peace and comfort during this difficult time.

    Mrs. Hiatt was the best fifth grade teacher ever, with her quiet support, faith, and intelligence having a lasting impact. Her most special family will be in our prayers as we extend our sympathy.
