I was terribly saddened to learn of Vanessa's passing. I had the pleasure of having Vanessa as a friend and mentor during her time at All Saints' Academy which continued after she left the school. I cannot imagine the pain of losing such a wonderful, courageous and dedicated wife, Mom, and grandmother. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I had the privilege of working with Vanessa at All Saints Academy along with the fact that we attended Saint Matthew's and that she taught my husband at Winter Haven High School. Vanessa was an amazing teacher and such a dear human being. May God be with Vanessa and with her family.
