PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW~ I praise and thank Him for the Blessing of "Mrs.D." in my life. As my HS Gym teacher, but most importantly, as my mentor and dear and faithful friend throughout the past 53 years. Her presence in my life has been a true privilege and a priceless gift. She shaped me in immeasurable ways with her gentle and loving spirit, and for that, I am eternally grateful. My heart will always hold you dearly, "Mrs. D.". I offer my deepest and most sincere sympathies to Judy & Anita, and the Greenland family and pray that God's Mercy, Grace, and Peace will be with you all, today, tomorrow, and all your days to come. Until our heavenly reunion, my Dear Friend. Blessings in Christ~ "Susie"
