I am so sorry to hear of Ms. Fleeter’s passing. She was much loved by our family. She was the crossing guard at my daughter’s school and always had a hug and smile for her. This made a huge difference during some tough middle school years. My son and I enjoyed spending time with her while we waited for my daughter.

Much love to all her loved ones.
