One of my favorite teachers was in my 9th year of school Mrs. Marilyn Oufnac. Thirty years later I am about an hour away from the town where she is my teacher and we are in a WW meeting sitting next to each other. She is such a sweet lady an dress than ten years older than me. We are now facebook friends and she knows how much I love her.

Before I met up with her, my daughter had been working on her in physical therapy. They both love each other too.
