I was so sad to hear of the passing of Mrs. Schlimm.
She was an Aide in my classes at the St. Marys Middle School.
She was wonderful with me and she was very nice. She was like a friend
to me and I will miss her a lot. To me she was a great gift.
I know that she is watching down on us with love.
It is very hard to lose a family member or friend.
