Hundreds of balloons floated over Lincoln Thursday afternoon, for a very special reason.

Last week, Dayna Buss, a longtime and well-respected and admired teacher at Cavett Elementary in Lincoln, died after battling cervical cancer.

On the Cavett school playground Thursday afternoon, kids with balloons in hand, and special messages written on those balloons, released them into the air, to honor Buss, who taught for 14 years at the school. Buss' last day was in early October.

"It felt really good to have Ms. Buss knowing that we did this for her,"
said one fifth grade girl.

Friends and co-workers say Buss was born to teach, and was adored by her young students.
