    So sorry for your loss. She was my favorite teacher when I was in grade school, it was almost like we were her kids rather than students, she would sing us the Fish in a brook song and we all loved her very much, it was like having a second mom , Another Precious Angel To Enter Heaven, forever in hearts and memories

    I’m very sorry to hear of Mrs. Gregory’s passing. She was my fifth grade teacher during the 1969-70 school year at Edison. All of my teachers at Edison were wonderful but Mrs. Gregory was special. While I have been blessed with many wonderful teachers through the years Mrs. Gregory remains my all time favorite. I still have the letter she sent me many years ago when I first became a teacher. We truly were like her children. I remember her speaking of her daughter, Ronda, becoming a cheerleader and if I’m not mistaken Miss Black Eagle. Those were much simpler times but my love for teaching came from her. She was a kind, loving person. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and I’m sure she is smiling down on all of her former students…..she truly made a difference in my life and the lives of countless others.

    Josh and family:
    I am so sorry for your loss. Dorcas was one of the sweetest person I have ever met, and so glad we were friends. I have lots of good memories of her, but my favorite is our NY trip that she, Jennifer and I took.

  8. Edward Hicks says:

    “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” (Tim. 4:7) This could have been said of Dorcas, just as the apostle Paul said it. Peace and love to you, Ronda, and your entire family. Sending up a special prayer for you, tonight.
