    Mrs. Nelson was the sweetest of Kindergarten teachers for this child who often felt overwhelmed. I clearly remember singing songs like, "Suzy Snowflake," "Lady, Lady, Buy a Broom for Your Baby," and "Michael Finnegan" as she played the green piano in our classroom. She also told us the story of "Frozen Charlotte". I'm 50 years old, so the impact from 45 years ago still remains. I still have and use a Campbell's Soup Kid cup we sent for with soup labels in Kindergarten. I ran into Mrs. Nelson probably 10 years ago in Meadville, and she even recognized me. May the Lord bless and comfort your family as you grieve the loss of Mrs. Nelson. She was truly a special lady.
