"Nancy" was my senior year teacher for journalism (I think) - it was her first year teaching. She was effervescent and a wonderful person who we all admired - which is a trick for a first year teacher and a bunch of LaSalle seniors! What a wonderful lady.

I would not have gotten through my Doctoral Program without her and her thesaurus book:) We will miss our Friday night reminiscence. You are gone but never forgotten.

My sincerest condolences to Mrs. Hardy's family. She was my favorite teacher and I was lucky enough to know her outside of school and in later years after graduating. She had the best laugh and a great sense of humor. So many fun memories of shopping trips and the trip to Vegas when Roxanne and Clark got married. She has always had a special place in my heart and memories.
