Shawn and the other family members. Mrs. Elizabeth was one of the first people I met when I started teaching school in Crisp County . She was driving the first bus that pulled up to let my students off, from that day on she was a special friend to me even after I retired. She shared a special love with all of the special needs children that rode her bus. You are in my thoughts and prayers. May you find comfort in the loving arms of our Lord and Savior during the difficult days ahead. Cassandra Bullington
