    Our thoughts and prayers for Eddie and Family. It’s been 12 years since we moved to Texas from the Hendersonville area but often find ourselves thinking back to dear friends we left behind but held in our thoughts and memories.

    My thoughts and prayers are with this sweet family! I first had Mrs. Greer for a fourth grade teacher before going on to play softball with her beautiful daughters. We went to church together and Coach Greer taught at the high school where my mother worked! Love this family and I will be praying for each of you! ❤️❤️🙏🏼🙏🏼

    So sad to hear Mrs. Greer passed. She was such a nice lady. I appreciate all she did for my children at Wessington Place Elementary. She was a GREAT teacher and a wonderful Christian lady.
