US Army Corporal Manny Lopez

Today our class welcomed, Mrs. Lopez, US Army Corporal Manny Lopez’s mother, into our class. Mrs. Lopez is a Gold Star parent who lost her son while he was defending our country. We had the opportunity to hear her story, ask her questions about Manny and enjoy a snack. Our class created a quilt that highlighted many of the wonderful qualities in which Manny possessed, the hobbies he enjoyed and the people who were closest to him. We gave the quilt to Mrs. Lopez as a symbol of our gratitude for the ultimate sacrifice. Today was a memorable day for all of us.
