Influential People 

Yesterday, I had a lovely chat with my kindergarten teacher – Mrs. Guynn. We’ve kept in touch through Christmas cards and mutual friends over the years. She is an incredible lady! Not only is she a brilliant and talented educator, but she also lives in a rural area doing lots of gardening – all at the prime age of 101! 

She’s just as quick and clear as she’s always been, remembering the names of my family members & asking questions about how my business is going! Currently, she’s having a little trouble with bronchitis and just wants to be, “done with it, already “! Ah, to have that much spunk at 101 – almost 102! She’s my hero! 

So, to all the special people who show us how it’s done – I salute you!!! Thank you, Mrs. Guynn!!!

    How wonderful! That she’s still going strong, that you’ve stayed in touch, and that she’s lived long enough to hear how much she has meant to former students!
