Mrs. Sweet was one of the best teachers at Fillmore Central. Always a smile on her face, and many words of wisdom for her students. She will be greatly missed by many. My sincere condolences to the family.

Sweet family- No words can comfort you for the loss of your Mother, but knowing that she is now without pain should bring relief to your hearts. When you see a bright star, or hear a bird's song it is Mom saying she loves you!
