  • I loved having “Mrs. Call” for my teacher! She was such a ray of sunshine that I enjoyed going to school every day! Of course, later on, she became “Aunt Betty” to all of us Thompsons, due to my friendship with Carole. What a wonderful life! We were all blessed by her and how her positive attitude brightened her surroundings!
