    Carl, Jamie and Jason’ I was so sorry to hear about Kim. She was a very special part of the Adult Education Program. She always had a smile for everyone who came in the door and gave her all to support the students and their families as they worked hard to finish their education. I am praying for the peace that only God can give during this time. I hope that you will share the special memories with each other and those will bring you comfort. I will be driving my parents to their home in NC so I will miss her celebration, but please know that you will be on my mind.

    Carl, years have separated us since we attended school together in Fernandina, but I wanted to extend my condolences to you over the loss of your wife. Ran into Joey at Walmart in April, and my father who was with me and who passed away shortly thereafter, just loved talking with him. We asked about you.

  • Vickie Lewis Grow Posted June 21, 2017 10:04 am
