To the family and friends of Dallas, I am a professor in the History Department at the University of Montana. Dallas took my colonial Latin American history class a few years ago. She was a bright and hard-working student and a delight to have in class. I'm sure she would have been a wonderful teacher. I am so very sorry for your tragic loss. As a mother, I cannot imagine what you are going through. I wish you all the best. Jody

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Davis, My name is Maygan Lenz and I am the Assistant Director in the Office of Field Experiences at the University of Montana. I am the person in charge of field placements, as well as securing student teaching placements. Over the past few semesters I was able to get to know your daughter as she worked to complete her teaching degree. Dallas was a very kind young lady and always had a smile on her face. I can't imagine what you are going through at this time. I just want to let you know that my thoughts are with your family during this difficult time. Dallas will be missed by all. Sincerely, Maygan Lenz

I am so very sorry to hear about Dallas. Dallas spent last semester in my classroom at C.S. Porter in Missoula. The kids loved her! She would make Social Studies content fun and interesting. We had some good visits. She was so proud of her family and so ready and excited to be home for her student teaching. My heart hurts for all of you. Sincerely, Terry Jarvis
