Omg, she was definitely a favorite! Mrs. Bradley was one of the greatest educators/librarians of all times. She kept us in line and modeled an example of a wonderfully poised and intelligent woman.

Even though my heart is broken, there is joy knowing my friend is at rest and the sufferings of this life are no more. I am thankful I was given the opportunity to share time on this earth with such a caring, considerate person whose passion for life inspired others. She taught me so much and encouraged me. Particularly, at a time when I was filled with uncertainties about my future. Ms. Rosie, thank you for treating me like a son. I don't know if you ever knew how much that meant to me. You will be greatly missed. but I am comforted by the realization that love never dies. I love you my friend. Until we meet again, rest.
