    She was the most positive person I knew. A wonderful person who led by example.

    This was one of my mother's class mates. I have several pictures of this beautiful lady in mothers book. My heart is broken and my prayers go out for this family. Only a couple Honey Island class mates left. God made a home for them. Mr Caldwell was her coach and teacher and my elementary Principal in Beaumont. My mom was half Miss Bartlett's age when she passed. May God be with this family.
