    I have just learned of Mrs. McNair's passing. I would like to give you my sincerest symphathy. Mrs. McNair was a wonderful teacher. She taught my little girl, Amber Nicole Minner in First Grade. Without her help, Amber would not have passed her grade. It was your wife that saw that Amber had a learning problem. She was a very dedicated teacher. Amber was diagnosed with ADHD and was put on medication and with Mrs. McNair's extra help, after Amber was put on medication for her ADHD, she brought all her grades up and passed her grade. I am so thankful for her. She will be greatly missed. I just was thinking of her the other day, when I came across her address that she gave me to send her an invitation to my graduation from college. Mrs. McNair was not only a teacher to my daughter, she encouraged me in my studies. She told me that I was setting an example to Amber, to show her even someone at my age could learn more also. You see I was 49 when I graduated from college. Again I am sorry for your loss. Have a blessed day. Mary Jane Price
