It has been 34 years since I lived next door to Mr. and Mrs. Babcock. They were always so kind to me, you could tell that they truly loved young people. We stayed with them after the flood for a few days because all of our possessions were in a moving truck in Elmira !! We were supposed to move the Friday of the flood. They were wonderful people the like of which are not often encountered.</b></font><br><br>
Mrs. Olmstead was a very special lady! She was also a gift to all the students. She had what it took to make people realize that they were "special" too! I do not remember ever seeing this lady without a smile as you passed by her. She has served and guided many. How lucky we were to have known her.

Ms. Olmstead Babcock always made me feel special when I was in high school and "pushed" me in her special way to achieve more. I may have forgotten some of my teachers but not Ms. Olmstead. God bless her and keep her safe.</b></font><br><br>
Sally, Judy, Keith, Gordon and Elaine-----What a special lady! We have many fond memories of Marion and are grateful that she was able to enjoy life to the end. We are in Phoenix but will be with you in spirit for her memorial.</b></font><br><br>
Mrs. Olmstead was the one person in my life that made such a huge impact. She taught me to look at tomorrow not at today. She guided me through some tough times and pushed me when I needed. Because of her I am a person, that can hold my head up high and be proud of the person I see in the mirror.
She held more love and concern in her heart, than anyone I have ever known.
