    Donna, I am so proud that you were a part of Lighthouse! The teacher's meetings and before school meetings were much more fun because you were there. You changed the lives of many children that came through our doors. Their lives are the jewels in crown you cast before Jesus' feet in heaven. Rest, well done good and faithful servant.
