So sad to read about Miss Richards passing, I have such fond memories of her kindness during Jr High school. She was firm, but also very kind. I always wondered where she was, may she rest in peace.

A wonderful teacher, a spirited human being, a kind soul. That's how I'll remember Miss Richards from my years at Catskill Junior High. I still remember her fondly when I see a former teacher, she provided a colorful, stress-free classroom that made a very difficult year (7th grade) for me much easier. Thank you so much!

Sarah was one of the first people who accepted Bruce and I without reservation, when we moved back from Las Vegas. She was a great friend and we will always have fond memories of her. Fly high Princess and god bless.
