    My son had Mrs. Carney when he was in the second grade. During February break we took our kids to Disney World. While sitting in a bus waiting to be taken to one of the parks, who enters the bus but Pat. We all kind of squealed when Pat saw my son! She was a lovely person and excellent teacher. Pete and family please accept my sincere condolences. You and I were in the same graduation class at SVHS in 1965.

  4. My Condolences to your family at such a difficult time. Was so sorry to hear this. May God hold her tight and may she RIP. She will be your Angel and always remain deep in your heart.
