Today in History

Today is a very sad day in history. Diana is no longer working for Gunter ISD for the first time in 33 years, and I no longer have my best friend and sister in the office next to me. It has been said many times that we sometime do not realize how valuable someone or something is until you lose it. This is definitely the case with Di leaving the school. It is all of our great loss. There were several things that you could count on while she was in charge: she always did what was best for the student, she was fair and consistent, and she was a very effective principal for students, teachers, and parents. On a personal note, I was so blessed to get to work with my sister all these years.

Diana's "Good-Bye"  (after the tears)!

Even though she has closed one chapter of her life, she is starting a brand new one. In one week she is starting a month long course to get her Diagnostician's certification. I wish her the very best, and I know that she will be as great of a "diag" as she was an educator.

Love and Best Wishes to you, Di!


  1. Ok...I'm crying again!!

    Thank you, M, for this sweet post. It's been a great privilege to have worked so closely with you in what God called us both to do. Thank you for trading in the sewing machines years ago for the computers in middle school.

    You are one of my greatest blessings. I admire and love you dearly!


  2. Oh really sad. It happens when someone very near goes away from you leaving the moments spent together. But this is life we need to live it peacefully.
