  1. S. AnnDaniel and I taught together at Holy Name, Wilmot. We both came there in 1959. It was my first year teaching< our rooms were adjoining. She had excellent care/ control of her students and was very caring to me. Over the years we have had intermittent communication. She surely is now another BVM angel. Thanks to the Blessed Virgin for bringing us together. Peace in Heaven AnnDaniel Mac
