Private Condolence

Dear McGill Family,
I had the pleasure of knowing your Mom, Grandma, and Great for many years. I was a teacher in the Early Childhood program at Hillcrest school when I met Evelyn, who was working with Marge Fox. I'll always remember her beautiful smile which she shared frequently with children and adults. She showed so much compassion for the children. She was so devoted to her job and to you, her family. She was so outgoing and friendly and oh so caring. She loved you all very much and was so proud to share stories about you. I'm sorry to say that after she retired we lost touch with one another, but she is someone you don't forget. I wish I could be there in person to say goodbye. Sending my heartfelt sympathy to you all. I know the memories you have of her will keep her in your hearts forever.
Sarah Jane Dvorin Retired Early Childhood Teacher.

Thanks for sharing this Sarah. My Mom spoke often of how much she loved being a teachers aide. She had always wanted to work with children and was so glad she was able to.
