Diane, I am so sorry to hear about your Mother's passing. Having moved to Bowling Green, I often don't hear the important news I should. Your Mom was always an example of a true Christian as she exhibited kindness and love to her students and all who knew her. Her dedication to her church, her family and her students could serve as an example to us all. I shall long remember her smiling face and loving spirit. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.Blessings,Nancy Taylor Stinnett

Diane, We are so sorry to hear about the passing of your Mother. Mrs. Bewley sure was a sweet lady. She taught children for many years and she always had a smile for everyone she came in contact with. I used to see her at Houchens and help her with her groceries when I was a young boy. Diane, you will be in our thoughts and prayers during this time of your loss. Take care. Kent and Rhonda McElroy.
