My daughter and I both got to know and adore Ms. Holland at Wakefield High School. We are truly heartbroken. She was a generous, thoughtful, meticulous and learned woman, and we admired her very much. Our hearts are just broken. Ms. Holland deserved more gratitude at WHS by staff and students than she ever received and our lives are richer and better because of her. I want her family to know this. She will be missed.

I am very honored to have had Ms Holland as a teacher during a highschool semester a few years ago. They were one of my favourite teachers and, despite only having a semester with them, had a huge impact that made each day in their classroom enjoyable. It really breaks my heart to find out this long after passing.
