My deepest condolences to the family...Mrs. Richards was my son Joey's teacher's aide in grade school and junior high school. She loved him, advocated for him, and gave him the utmost in care and respect--she believed in him! Naturally, she treated all of her students that way, but I will never forget how well she looked after Joey, and how much he learned from her. So many lives are richer for having known her.
