I was not acquainted with Dora, but I was in Ed Jameson's class at Bismarck High school. So sorry for your loss, Ed and all of the family.

Sending prayers for peace to the family of Mrs. Read. She was a wonderful person and an excellent teacher. She taught my daughter, Kathi, in the first grade and I will never forget the special attention she gave her students and because of her excellent teaching skills my daughter is a 5th grade teacher using what she learned from Mrs. Read. She will never be forgotten by Kathi and myself. Rest in peace Mrs. Read.
