    Mrs Oates was my teacher in Grade 4,1964, it was a composite grade 3 + 4 class.
    I was a very sensitive, perhaps damaged child. When she pointed out to me that that I shouldn’t draw boxes around what I wrote, I got upset, she proceeded by sitting me on her knee and sang a song about little boxes made of ticky tacky…. She made me feel secure!
    I will remember her lovingly till I die.

    RIP Mrs Oats /Allen, you were the best teacher I ever had, I was lucky enough to have you in grade three and four. You some how sensed that I was going through tough times and I was struggling, you encouraged me to be the best that I could be and I will be forever grateful for that. I will love and respect you till the day I die.

    Dear Aunty Julie,
    It was heart warming to be at the funeral service today of your mother. What a woman. However the loss of a mother is always a momentous event irrespective of their age and achievements. We extend our deepest sympathies and love to you and your family.
