Condolences for Mrs. Darlene Waggoner

I would like to offer my condolences to Mrs. Waggoner's family. I hired her to be one of my teacher's at Wilmer Academy and she was an absolute joy. She gave our student's her very best and they loved her for it. I could always rely on her to be there and be flexible enough to fill in wherever she was needed. I loved her smile and her personality. As an administrator, I wished that all of my staff members could share in her attributes. Rest on Mrs. Waggoner, you were a jewel. May God bless and comfort your family and friends always.
