    I'm so sad to hear Mrs. Massey has passed away. I grew up next door to her family, and she was always so sweet. I know she will be missed. My prayers are with her family.

    Deepest condolences to all: Your precious, sweet mother was one of my Port Neches Elementary music teachers in the early 1950’s. And, in my Senior year at PN-G, she graciously blessed me with some of her beautiful, homemade dresses which I was so glad to receive. She was an excellent seamstress. She was also the epitome of a gracious, Christian woman. It was wonderful to belong to the same church as she and your late father, who taught me Drivers Training my sophomore year at PN-G. Keep your sweet and precious memories close to your hearts.
