Dear Karen and Jay,
Billie and I cannot attend BJ’s funeral but we want you to know that we share in your sorrow! She was a very special part of our memories of school life and, especially teaching the two of you—it was a privilege having a part in your education! We will always have fond memories of your mother! May you take comfort in knowing we care about your loss!

With love, Barbara and Billie Deaton

BJ was such a wonderful, caring person. I believe everyone who knew her would agree. I met her as the Principal's Secretary at Charlotte High School in 1969! If you wanted to know anything about the school system, you just asked BJ and if she did not know, she would find out. Such a warm and friendly addition to the whole school system for many, many years and a very dear friend thereafter! My sincere condolences to Karen, Jay and all the family. Cling to all the good memories. She was loved by many and will be missed by all. Rest in Peace my dear friend!

I have known BJ for a long time. I worked in the payroll department for the Charlotte County Public Schools when we met. She would be call me and we would work together with whatever the issue was. She was such a gracious lady, so easy to talk with. Sorry to hear of her passing. Prayers for the family.
