I am so sorry about Mrs. Rich and baby Sunshine. Praying for her family and those two precious little boys. I will miss seeing her at school. She was a wonderful teacher. I always admired how well behaved her students were in the hall. She set high expectations and they were truly blessed to have her as their teacher.
