Doris was one of my favorite and best teachers. I still remember so much she taught me in American History. I grew to love her as a friend in later years. Please know Chris and Suzanne that I will miss and think of her often. My prayers and thoughts. Becky Barnes McCrary

I remember Mrs. Jones during the years I lived in Thomasville and while teaching at Hobson State/Alabama Southern. She was a very polite and nice lady. Sharon and I send our deepest condolences to her family. Sharon was in her classes at Thomasville High. Fond remembrances. Faron and Sharon McKinley, Franklin, Alabama (Monroe County).

May you have comfort in the memories of your loved one. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4) The
Bible gives real hope of being reunited again with your loved one. It promises that
your loved one will soon come back to life in the resurrection to a peaceful paradise
on the earth. (John 5:28, 29)
