How many of you remember your Kindergarten teacher?
her name was Mrs. Peck and I remember her like yesterday.
Maybe it's because she was my first teacher, and she was so nice,
not mean like some other teachers I had in elementary school.
She made school fun!
I still remember Mrs Peck as if I were that little 5 year old.
I also Remember that she was "really old" (in my 5 yr old eyes)
As I read her obituary today, Rick and I did the math,
she was only 54 when I had her as a teacher...two years older than I am now.
But she really looked old, with her short permed gray hair!
Of course now I know she was YOUNG, very young and she lived another 45 years
before her death on Saturday.
She was 99 years old, 1 month shy of her 100th birthday.
RIP Mrs. Peck, you touch many lives!
Love was her guide and kindness was her creed.
