I want to extend my sympathy to Denny and family. Evelyn was one of a kind. I cried the day the school took our aides away and lost her as mine. We were together a long time. She was such a caring, loving para to the students and myself. When my husband died , I knew my room was in great hands as she took over. I would give her instructions for the whole day and she accomplished all tasks and more. She was a perfectionist in all she did and an amazing with crafts. Such talent! Much love to the Garland family.
