I’m sorry to hear if Barb’s passing. I had the opportunity to take care of her when needed in her later years.

Mrs Zick was one of the best and most memorable teachers I had. She instilled confidence, love and a sense of adventure in all her students. I was so glad to have her in my life even in my adult years. She will truly be missed.
