    My Condolences to the Gaddis Family. I am so sorry to learn of your loss. I had the pleasure of working with Mrs. Gaddis for several years at Eastside School. She was a hard worker and a dedicated educator. She loved to work with her students and followed their progress in education. Her death is a great loss to us all. May she rest in peace after a job well done.
