    My deepest condolences to the Royes family. Deloris was one of my BEST students at Bensonton Elementary School. I can remember her radiant smile. She was a loving and helpful student in my class. R.I.P.

    May her soul rest in peace. Dr. Graham has made a huge contribution to my professional life as a teacher and for that I am grateful. Her family will be in my prayers.

    I am saddened to hear of the passing of this Great Lady who was humble and yet so strong. We at our time at The Mico switched our classes just to attend her Professionalism Classes. She taught not just Theories but also Ways of Life. I am grateful that she touched my life and opened my eyes to world at that time until now.
    Condolences to the family.
    May Her soul rest in peace and light perpetually shines on her.
