  1. Ingrid Bimbo

    To Airlee’s Family; I have always had the utmost respect for Airlee as a leader and educator. She hired me as a teacher at Dorothea Dix Hospital and taught me so much about teaching students who had problems. She was the perfect role model for me as I moved into an Administrator position. I know that Airlee will be in a better place watching over all of us. My prayers go out to all of you hoping you will have some comfort during this difficult time.


    Sorry to hear about Airlee’s passing. We had many years of great friendship together when she lived in Four Oaks which was in our younger days. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  3. Carolyn King

Know that the Master is your answer in to keep you and comfort you in this trying time. Sincerely Carolyn King
