  4. Mrs. Campbell was my 6th-grade English teacher. She was strict but I thought she was great. I had an ‘in’ with her as she was a good high-school friend of my aunt, Melva Brooks Jimerson. My heartfelt condolences to each of you, including Connie, as you grieve her death and remember her with joy, looking forward in hope. Job 19.25-27
