I wish to send you my deepest and most heartfelt condolences for your loss. Mrs. Olsen was a truly wonderful teacher. Her talent, and great patience with those of us who struggled early on with reading should be an inspiration to future teachers.

sorry for these belated words....I had the pleasure of working with Elaine at Leland School many years ago. She was a mentor to me as I grew in my understanding of literacy. My belated condolences to Elaine's family.
