I just hung up the phone from one of the school board members that I have been working with for the help for the shoots this year. As we were wrapping up he had mentioned to me that one of the sophomores that worked last year scoring for us had gone in to cardiac arrest and passed away.
i will get the name and information so if you would like to send something you surely can please share this. We never know the day nor the hour. Her family is in our prayers for peace
Here is the information.
I sent flowers from our family and also put on card thanks for her support and efforts with the WTA
