I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Mrs. Carver. As so many others, I was one of her students at Westmoreland. There was never a dull moment in her class or on our school trips, thanks fo her. Im so thankful for those memories & that I had the privilege of knowing her.

I am one of Mrs. Carvers home economics students. I had the privilege of seeing her in The Dollar Tree in Lafayette some time before Christmas last year. She was buying her some Christmas decorations. When I saw her, I knew immediately who she was. I dont think she had changed much since I had her in school. I told her who I was & she talked just as if she had seen me on a regular basis. Im so sorry for the familys loss. She was always a fun teacher. for your family.
