    Jim, I am sorry for the loss of your mother. I will be making a Memorial contribution to the Childtens hospital in her memory. She was always a joy to visit with @ family gatherings.

    Ms. Haynes was my teacher WAY back at Green Acres. In fact, Bob and I were classmates.

    I remember one time when I was in her class, I was carving my name on the top of the desk. She caught me and said “Cary – Go back to the cloak room.” I received 2 or 3 swats (back when it was allowed). Other than that – great times being a kid.

    The good thing now is she is reunited with Bob and the rest of the family.

    Jim, Larry and I are so sorry for your loss. If you ever come up to Sunray, to see Aunt Wilda, look us up.
    We would love to see you.

    To the Haynes family I am sorry for your loss, Mrs. Haynes was my 3rd grade teacher back in the mid 1980’s at Green Acres. She great a lady and patient with her students if they needed extra help. My dad had her husband James as a teacher at Dumas High School. May she rest in peace…and be remember by all who had her as an awesome teacher and in life.
