    I wanted to say how saddened i was to hear of Mrs.Finch’s passing. Her smile and happiness were always a joy to see. This isolation we’re in had me temporarily confused when I saw the announcement. It wasn’t until I looked a picture that I connected the person with the name. I’ve cried that I didn’t realize earlier that a dear pew buddy has left us and I wasn’t able to say hello just once more. I’ll keep your family in my prayers and hold a special place in my heart for the times we did have together. May God bless all of you.

    Mrs. Finch was my fifth grade teacher at C G Credle. I think Davis was in this class too. She was a great teacher and her laughter was contagious. I am sorry for your loss.
