Dear Custard family,

I am so sorry for your loss. Mrs. Custard was my kindergarten teacher at Akiba Academy back in 1971. I fondly remember her sweetness, her grace and her politeness.

She was always so sweet and caring, and I have clear memories of her teaching us good manners and that we should treat everyone with respect, and that was quite a task as we were a class of 16 five year olds. She taught us lessons that last a lifetime, and she will be missed by all.

God Bless her, and may God bless you with comfort as you mourn her loss.

May her memory be a blessing.

Kathryn and Andy Schultz and family

Chris, I happened upon your mom's announcement in the paper. I am sorry for your loss.
Seeing your family's name brought back many memories of how your mom was so good at taking care of us and providing "cover" when our group was up to no good back in those high school days.
Hope all is well with you and yours.
