  1. Super lady that I was fortunate enough to have the pleasure of working with. Someone who positively influenced countless numbers of students and fellow educators throughout her career at Thornton Fractional.

  2. For years, the Vanderbys were our neighbors there in Lansing. My deepest sympathy to the Vanderbys, realtives and friends, for their loss.
