    I was blessed by God having Mrs. Boe as a teacher.
    Her influence helped shape me. My enjoyment and love for reading is a direct result of the books she read to us in fourth grade.
    I pray your family will be comforted by knowing she made a lasting impression on so many lives. The Lord used her to touch so many lives in a positive way!
    Psalms 62:5-8

    My whole childhood and teenage years are filled with memories of Mr. Culberson. First my teacher in elementary school and always attended church with her at First United Methodist Church in Pahokee. In addition, she and her Mr. Culberson were dear friends of my parents as well. She was a great lady. I didn’t see it mentioned, but Mrs. Culberson was always a very dedicated “Pink Lady” at the local hospitals as well! Always a kind word and a smile on her face! Heaven gained another angel!
