    I taught Preston art at Willow River. He was always a fun kid, and the world is a better place because he was here. I’m so sorry he was taken from us so young.

    Angie my deepest empathy and compassion for all that you are going through. I’ve seen the love you had for your baby boy Preston. He was lucky to have you as his Mom. You are a Mom that cares not only for your own son but for others also. I remember the help you having Stephen come over to ride with Preston on the bus. You and Preston have always been in my thoughts, how could you not, both very good hearted people. My heart and prayers will be with you in this time, and in future.
