    Peace be with you all! Or parents watch us grow and learn to fly on our own, but it is hard for us when they receive there golden wings. They have a wonderful journey ahead of them until we see them again.

    I have such fond memories of sweet Don Lahrman. He was a well-loved bus driver for Union Elementary students. Each morning & evening he greeted the children with a smile & kind word. He solved mechanical issues in my 3rd grade classroom @ the drop of a hat! Don was such a gentle giant in the Zionsville Community & I was blessed to call him my friend!

    My thoughts & prayers are with my dear friends Donna & Ray! Love you both! ❤️
