To the Alibin Family and Friends,
That big smile is her legacy; she wore that everyday with heartfelt gusto. Her loyality to her family, friends, and colleague round up her qualities as a person. As ass't principal at Faulk Intermediate (81-89, I had the privilege of being her primary appraiser. Her math classes were always on task when she worked with each child individually. She was always so dedicated to her students and to fulfilling her duties as a great teacher. Her positive attitude and ability to make proper decisions taught many of us what is means to have a great life. You will miss her forever, but she has left behind a great model for you to follow. My sincere condolences and assurance that she is now resting in full peace and very content for accomplishing her mission on earth. RIP Ms. Alibin! . Judi (J.Rod) Rodriguez
