James and Kevin, Sorry I will not be able to attend your mom's service today or tomorrow. I can't tell you how many wonderful memories I have of your mom, you guys and the band days we shared! Success of any organization always depends on the parents, students, school and band director. It's a team effort! Your mom was a "Team" player! You all were a great blessing in my life at West Hardin! The great blessing we have when we lose a loved one is the memories we can cherish! We love you all and your family will stay in our prayers! God Bless you all! We love you! Beckie and Bobby Fife
