Ms. King was a wonderful music teacher during my years at Alexander Graham Junior High in the late 1960's. Those were great years for the all the students whose lives she touched. Her legacy will live on as one we remember her for bringing music into the lives of so many students. Rest in Peace, Ms. King and thanks for dedicating your life to education.

Ms. King was one of my teachers at Alexander Graham Junior High School. I am thankful that ten years later she allowed me to gain experience in her classroom as a substitute teacher. I remember her grace and gentleness and strength. May the family be comforted.

My condolences to your family on the loss of this fine lady. She taught with me at Hillcrest Jr. High, where she was a patient inspiration to her students and an example of grace and calm to other teachers. She was my sister in Delta Kappa Gamma, for which she was a charter member, and in these ranks she will be missed.

The Bible tells us that God IS Near the broken- hearted. He desires to comfort us with the hope of the resurrection. By means of the resurrection the tears of pain and sorrow will be replaced with tears of joy as we see those asleep in death restored to life on earth under perfect condition as those described a5 Revelaion 21:3-5.

I want to offer my condolences for the loss of your loved one. Tthe Bible offers this hope at Acts 24;15 which says there is going to be a resurrection. This has given many hope. I hope it will do the same for your family.
