    Kathy, I don't know if you remember me or not, but my sister Brandi Gallaher was in your class at Belville Elementary in the early 2000's and I was in 3rd/4th Grade with Elise in Mrs. Lloyd's class. We were also in a few other classes together through the years. I am so sad to hear this news of Elise and my thoughts and prayers are going out to you and all of your family/friends. I'll be thinking about you during this difficult time. Take care, Robyn
