    My Teacher…My Mentor….My VERY Dear Friend.
    I am sad beyond words, but SO very touched by how she took us under her wing and taught us more than we ever dreamed we could do. Every Thursday was spend around her work table with friends “solving the problems of the world” and learning… always LEARNING something wonderful.
    So THANK YOU Sehoy, thank you for everything! And I promise to “pay it forward” and share what I’ve learned under your watchful eye…
