Hurrah for Horan

What a great teacher she really was. She was my 4th grade teacher at Central School and influenced me with her big smile too and her saving grace to accepting all as unique gifts embarking on the world at large. She definately is a role model to all teachers today, with the patience and virtues we need to learn. Back in her day, it shows so well, that it was worth being close to nature, heart and soul, towards a better future in carrying that genuine love that is so missed today. I enjoy seeing her from time to time walking everywhere…Wow…you are 90 and look much younger; all that fresh air… cheers Fran to being who you are to all of us that remember you with gratitude.
