I have very fond memories of Mrs. Aurand. From her teaching me math in school to spending the night at the house with Vicky. She gave me the confidence to know I was capable of doing business math. She always encouraged me and had a kind word. She was a wonderful person. My thoughts and prayers for the whole family.
