    I met Ms. Bayless when she came for her grandson’s parent-teacher conference. What a sweet and caring lady. She had a deep concern & genuine love for her grandchildren. I am so saddened to hear of her passing and my prayers are with her family and friends, especially her grandchildren who are heavy on my mind.
