"She was a very, very kind lady, very good teacher. Everybody thought very highly of her, so it's really tough," said parent Lindsay Larossa.

Larossa had seen Holland just last week when their kids played together.

Holland died from complications after her husband said she refused to take Tamiflu because of the cost.
