FYI:

 

IN MEMORY OF OUR DEAR MRS. FLAMMA~~

 

 

 

 

Alberta Flamma~~Our Hometown Angel

 

Our dear Alberta~~

 

A gift to all of us on how to truly live

 

Always a sparkle and twinkle in her eyes,

 

Loving and caring for the students at our school,

 

Bright and beaming daily at her work with kids,

 

Enthusiastic and energetic at school, scouts, and more,

 

Real good listener and patience galore with my 5W students at lunch

 

       and recess whom she adored.  (Mrs.Flamma was my lunch aide a few years ago!)

 

Truly, an awesome friend and colleague who took the time for me~~

 

       To talk, to listen, to encourage, and to cheer me on.

 

Awesome angel who will continue to watch over us and care.

 

Even though Alberta’s sunset has arrived,

 

I’ll cherish the memories of our Alberta,

 

And follow her simple ways~~Take time to listen better,

 

Be nice and be kind,

 

Yes, Alberta truly touched our lives.
