I am David and I was at Smokey Mountain Children's Home where Alpha Learning Center is at. I was a student there for a while and was in Mr. Bristol's class. Mrs. Sara would come and give the whole class candy and at times even bring me candy alone. Small things like that make a big difference in the world. Before she left Alpha Learning Center I would find and see her in the office and she would help the principle a lot. She was a great lady and she will be dearly missed.

It was my privilege to work with Sara Kay Morgan on and off for 12 years. She was a good teacher, a kind and gentle person whose presence resonated with children and adults. Her faith was quiet and strong. She respected all persons big and small and was an encouraging force in many lives. Sara Kay was a beautiful person inside and out. This world is poorer for her loss.Good bye my friend.

Ms. Dotson was the director of my last high school play, and she poured time into our production in a way most other women in their twenties would not have. She also roomed with myself, my best h.s. friend, and another girl, on our Jr./Sr. trip, and I think had as much fun as we did. I am glad she is no longer sick, and is happy and at peace with her Savior. It was good of God to share her with us.
