Condolence & Memory Journal

Just now hearing of Mrs. Dungan's passing... I loved her as my teacher in 4th grade as well as Mr. Dungan in the 5th grade. They were such kind people and so loving. I'll always remember playing the cup song for the class. God Bless.

My grandson was one of her students, also Mr. Dungan's, and I appreciated
so much the interest that they showed in helping him in his studies. Teachers
are so important and sometimes don't get the recognition they so deserve.
I am so sorry for your loss and I pray that God will watch over you in the days
and weeks ahead. God bless you.

We are so sorry for your loss of Charlee Beth.
She was the best friend I had in college. She was so smart! I always admired how she could read her college books and never mark in them and turn them new.
She was the best maid of honor and was so helpful on my wedding day.
So sorry we lost touch over the years.
Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.

Those we love don't go away. They walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved still missed and very dear.

I am saddened to read of Charlee Beth's death. Having grown up on Old Stage Road, we all knew each other either through school or church, two wonderful places to know our neighbors in Chilhowie.
You all must have wonderful memories of Charlee Beth. May you have comfort and warmth with the love you shared. Sincerely, Martha Jo

I was so honored to get to work with a teacher that I so admired. I am grateful for all that she did for me and the wonderful advice she shared.
