    My deepest sympathies for the loss of your Dear Sister Anna Mae. I was one of her students , in the tenth grade our class did the Thanksgiving School play we chose her as our play co-ordinator, we really did put on a good show, when it was over we presented her with a bouquet of Roses and a brush , comb, and mirror set, she was so thrilled but it gave me more pleasure giving it to her because she was a wonderful, caring Teacher and she LOVED HER BUSINESS CLASS STUDENTS! CLASS OF 1974!
