Dear Ken and Family, Although you'd mentioned that Marilyn was ill, I was saddened this morning to read of her passing. I'm sure you must feel very content with the love and care that you showered on her over the years - but especially during these last weeks when she needed you most. Nice to know that we have another 'ally' up there putting good words in God's ear for us. Peace, Fred McEvoy
Mrs. Kaestner was my 3rd grade teacher at Amerman. I'm 34 now and still have great memories of her. A classmate posted on facebook of her passing and reminded us of the activity of raising butterflies and releasing them on top of Amerman Hill. My thoughts and prayers are with you -- but know that so many of her students remember her with love!
