I was a student of Mrs. Bevill’s in 1972. I don’t remember a lot about those days but she taught many students who have gone on to succeed in life. God bless her and all teachers.

Allan and I were so sad not to have been able to attend Tommie's funeral. She and Ernie had become lifelong friends during our time at Southside Baptist. Both Tommie and Ernie served God faithfully, and we were blessed to have worked along side them in the church for many years. I never did get a chance to tell Tommie that for the past three years I have been lifting her up to Jesus just about everyday in my prayers. I have to rejoice now knowing that she is at home with Him, although our hearts break for all who loved her and miss her. With love and sympathy, Cynthia Bosson
