I sadly will not be in town on Saturday, I would love nothing more than to stop by and hug you and your family Jessica. Mrs. Finley was one of those teachers you call your favorite...she did her best to keep me serious every day of fourth grade and that was not an easy task. She was so understanding and kind and managed to make me gladly mind and listen --not many teachers ever could. She shared her love toward my sweet family on Facebook and I was so thankful to reconnect with her there! I know she loved your daddy dearly and they are rejoicing together in heaven -- all my love, and the comfort only Christ can give to your family. -Emily
