so sorry...

To the Family of Alice Swingle,
I am so very sorry for your loss. 

Mrs. Swingle was my first grade teacher and one of the nicest, most caring people I have ever had the privilege of knowing.  My mother, now passed, (Evelyn Davis) was a second grade teacher and a friend of Alice's.  It was nice for me to be able to see her through the years as I would come to see my Mom.  She always had a beautiful smile for me, for everyone.

I remember her classroom,  our "reading lessons", the felt board with the letters and animal cutouts we could play with.  She was a wonderful teacher, a wonderful person who will, I'm sure be missed by many.

May God comfort you and give you strength in this time of sorrow.
