Tuesday, July 9, 2019Dear Mr. Borbath, Miss Kerklaan taught me how to play basketball and volleyball in grade 8 at St. Anthony's School. I continued to play throughout highschool loving the sports but I bet if I played one-on-one in basketball against Ada, she would probably whip me!! We were also lucky enough to watch Miss Kerklaan fall in love with a charming fellow co-teacher named Mr. Borbath. As students and quite impressionable at the time, we kind of felt responsible as match makers for the two of you!!! God Bless Ada for being a role model for women and men alike! Fondly, Marilyn
