    Great teacher. Sorry for your loss Stephen and Cindy. I remember so many things about her in school as a student. One of my adult memories was I finished a leave of absence sub job for her after she had retired when Kelly Downing was on maternity leave from GMS. For some reason Mrs. Tolle could not complete so I finished it and she was so nice to show me how to do everything. I am now a teacher at GMS and Kelly and I remember that time very often. She was an inspiration to me. God is so good as he continues to comfort your family at this time.
