I had the honor and privilege of having Ms. Whitfield for health and PE, but the best was living next door to her in later years. She was always so cheerful and kind to be around, and always ready to help you in a moments time. David and family, i wish i could take away your pain, she will be missed but know that you will see her again. I pray that God will give you peace through this time of grief.
