Thank you for being the angel that you were. You had such a presence about you. We couldn't have one conversation without both falling out in tears laughing so hard! Those conversations continue to play in my head over and over again. I never thought the last time I had seen/spoke to you would be the last time. I will never forget how happy you were to go out for your birthday and the surprise birthday dinner your family gave you at Ruth Chris. You talked about it with such a glow and pure joy!
Thank you for being a great friend and co - worker who never complained and only wanted the best for people despite how they treated you. You will definitely be missed. You were the best and most humble diva I had ever met lol. I know the kids at the daycare will miss you. We have a new set of babies you would have loooooved to see. I miss you and I love you. I'm not even sure you knew how much you truly meant to me and I'm sorry I never told you. You will forever be "Ms. Shero" to the kids, especially the ones who gave you the hardest time lol. Rest well dear friend.

With love and condolence to your family,
Ms. Sarah Scott, La Petite Infant Lead Teacher
