Eden had a piece of artwork picked to be shown at the school district's Culture Fest. It was held at the Waterloo Center for the Arts. We invited my mom and Eden's former art teacher, Deb Wesley. Deb and my mom worked together several years ago at Lincoln Elementary in Waterloo. Unfortunately in July, Deb suddenly passed away. We were so sad to hear this news as her and my mom had recently become good friends. She was always so nice and friendly. Eden loved her as a teacher.
