Condolence & Memory Journal

Lori I don't know if you remember me or not but your mother and I taught at Woodlands Heights together and also were very close for awhile. I left Woodland Heights and taught at Hendrix and we grew apart. The first four years I taught first grade were with your mother. She helped me so much!!!! Have never forgotten her. So sorry for your loss.

Janet was like a 2nd mother to me for many years. Our families were as close as could be. We vacationed together, ate together, and were neighbors for many, many years. She was one great Lady, and I will always be thankful to her for giving birth to my BEST friend (Lori). Thanks for all the memories, and I know you are in heaven talking over old times with my parents and Bill. RIP
Love you

Mrs. Hardin was such a wonderful teacher and came into our lives at Woodland Heights. She taught our youngest son and did a wonderful job. I remember being told that she was the type that gave big hugs to her kids and they all loved her for it. She truly touché so many lives. God Bless her!
