OD we miss you more than you would imagine at school. Not a day goes by when I don't walk by your room and do a double take to see if your are there. That said you are always a part of KO because of how much heart and soul you put into the school. The Cranberry Cup was an amazing event that not only gave much needed help to you and your family, it inspired all who were in attendance. Love you
