  4. Dear Amy, Ross, and Pete, I am so sorry about your tremendous loss. I can not possibly imagine your pain and sorrow. Mary was in my second grade class at Hermosa Valley. I remember a delightful youngster, a wonderful and sweet child, a joy to have in my class. The next year she wanted to use her first name, Mary. I called her “Mary Meg.” That became my nickname for her. She just didn\’t seem like a Mary. We used to laugh about it. I now teach at Hermosa View . Mary and her friend Angela often walked the dogs up here. I so looked forward to their visits! I really enjoyed talking with them. Mary was always her upbeat, happy self. I shall miss Mary so much!! She was a good, wonderful, caring, and delightful person. She will be in my heart and memories for ever. She is one of my kids forever…I shall never forget her!! Sadly and fondly, Jan Stewart

  5. Dear Anjanette and family I was so sorry to hear of the death of your sister. I never had the chance to meet her but from talking to Zohair, I know how important she is in your life and can only guess at how devastated you must be feeling. Please know that I am thinking of you and hoping that the feelings of loneliness become less painful soon. With sympathy Faisal
