A Very Sad Day

I just got some very sad news that my friend, Valarie Powell, who taught on my 6th grade team with me at Elmore Park Middle School, passed away Saturday night.  The details of her death are not not known at this time.  Valarie had been having respiratory complications for several months and was being treated for the complications.  Valarie was such a sweet lady! I always looked forward to seeing her each day at school and I enjoyed subbing for her last year when she needed me. She always knew how to make me laugh and make me feel better on the days the kids would "put me over the edge".   My heart goes out to her children.  Not only have they lost their step-mother, Valarie,  but also their biological mother, who passed away when the kids were very young, AND their father (Valarie's husband) passed away two years ago in a tree trimming accident.  I know Valarie was a believer and I am rejoicing that she is not only with her Saviour and her husband now. Please keep Valarie's children and extended family in your prayers as they prepare for services honoring Mrs. Valarie Powell.  I will miss her very much.
