An old friend in Indiana lost her mom recently. I wish I could have come home to attend the memorial. Mrs. Ridley was always so kind to me and we’ve all known Kathi since she and my sister met in first grade. I remember tagging along sometimes with Kathi and Kathy (which is what we called my sister back then) when they’d walk over from St. Richards to Shortridge High School, where Mrs. Ridley taught math. She had the way about her that good teachers have, that firmness mixed with nurturing. I feel lucky to have to have known her.
