I'm writing to send my condolences to Dr. Sommerville and his children. I read Mrs.
Somerville's passing exactly three months
ago in The Blade's obituary. She was my
7th grade math teacher at Old West End Jr.
High during the 1982-83 school year. I was
13, now I'm 44. She taught my older siblings, Lisa and Chris at both Glenwood
Elementary and Old West End in the '70s.
Also, her son Barry was a good substitute
teacher. I apologize for signing late.
May she rest in peace.

I will miss Mattie a lot. She was always cheerful and in a good mood, no matter what was going on. JC would call to check on me. We would talk a couple of minutes, and he he would give the phone to Mattie. Mattie and I would talk at least 30 minutes to an hour. She was funny and always made me laugh. When I came to vist her and JC, I was at home. I didn't want to leave. I'm praying and asking God to comfort the family. Love you cousin Mattie.

May God wrap his arms around the Sommerville family during this difficult time. Mrs. Sommerville was one of my teachers at Old West End. She and Mrs. J. Scott were my favorite educators and both made a profound impact on my life. I am saddened by her loss, but I know she is with God.

Sommerville Family,

Our thoughts and continued prayers are with you.

(Mattie) you have fought a good fight, you have finished (the) course, (and) have kept the faith; Henceforth there is laid up for (you) a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give you at that day; and not to you only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

(2 Timothy 4:7-8)
