I have such warm, special memories of Helen Miracle. She was an inspiration and wonderful role model. I first met her in the halls of Polk High School, was in her typing, shorthand, and office practice classes. I remember her sometimes bringing "little Billy" to school with her. I chose my career because of her. We later taught school together for many years at Madison Comprehensive High School and formed a genuine friendship.
My condolences and best wishes to the family. Love, Liz Snyder
