    I just ran into Mrs. Jones over Christmas at FBC Bishop. Of course she met me with a smile, and I complimented how she had not aged one bit! I was so surprised she remembered me as a student and how much I loved to read. 5th grade was around 18 years ago for me! She had such a gentle, loving spirit and touched the lives of many. May her sweet soul Rest In Peace.
