You don't know how often you are in our thoughts and conversation at home. My four children and 6 grandchildren all know about you in fact they all went and are going to Highlands High School where you worked so hard to watch over and teach the kids right from wrong. You were and still are well respected.
Love, your Aunt Linda...Linda Maldonado Kuppers and family RIP
