I am so sorry for your loss. Mrs. Hyder
was a true gem. Your family is in my
thoughts and prayers.
Rebecca and Mary, I was so sorry to learn of your mother's
passing, I loved her as my Reading teacher in 6th grade at
Colonial Heights Junior High. I am praying for your whole
family during this difficult time.
While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we
look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy
of having our heavenly Father return your dear one to you.
May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in
the memory of God, who will remember every detail about her
and bring her back again. (John 5:28, 29)

So very sorry to hear about Mrs. Hyder's passing. I had her as
a teacher at Colonial Heights Junior High & I loved her. I just
lost my mother, Katheryn Snodgrass, who also taught at
Colonial Heights Junior High, in April of this year. I pray the
peace of the Lord comforts you during this time of loss.
