My lasting memories of Dorothea, still live on- since that day in fourth grade, when she stopped by my desk and saw my artwork- so overjoyed and clearly quite amazed that I could draw that way. This Nun- our new art teacher, bent down, looked at me, and lovingly whispered, "Dear, you are an artist!" Throughout my years in Catholic grammar school- this kind teacher, a gift of God- honed my skills. The treasured memories of her driving force that helped my young potential grow- and constant mentoring that kept my interest strong, have never gone away. This gift of God- I was- and am- so thankful for.
