    Kate was the mother of one of my first graders and I so enjoyed knowing her. She took a trip to Ireland that year and brought me back a book of one of her favorite authors. I never forgot her kindness but remember how much I enjoyed my parent teacher conference where we both got to talking about books and authors she had loved. She was a wonderful person to know and I wondered why I had not seen her lately. I am very sorry for her loss and send love and a big hug to John, who was a wonderful student. Carla Zavorskas
