    RIP Beautiful Mrs. Brin. Your kindness helped so many children including two of my grandsons during a time they did not quite understand. You never judged them and responded to their needs with grace and love. You touched so many.

    Ms Brin will be very missed by our family. Part of the reason I felt so comfortable with my son Aiden going to school is that I knew she would be there to help him. I won’t forget the extra time and work she put in to help Aiden learn his sight words. She was a very kind person and I know she loved Aiden. That is such a wonderful gift for a parent to know that their kid is with someone who loves them. He loved her too and will always remember her.

    Our Condolences,

    The Ciccarella family
