    Ms Capps was a very giving and caring person that brightened our days at the school. She was down to earth and easy to talk to, making her a real treasure in this day and time. So many people loved her. Rest In Peace & Love.

    Love this lady. She would always hug me and make sure she asked how I was doing when she would come in Texas Roadhouse. I don’t allow myself to get attached to many people but this lady had a piece of my heart. Will miss seeing her

    May was one of the strongest women I knew. She made me proud to be called her friend. She was always there for me as support when I lost my mother. She was a ture and authentic person and friend. Those are hard to come by. I will miss her but I know she is in heave with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in her new glorified body. May she have eternal peace as we strive to be with her soon.

    Dear Chellie and family, prayers to all of you. Your mom was one of a kind. She taught me how to fix my battery cables when aI was a teenager. When Tabby was born she cried tears of joy because her baby was having a baby. I know she loved you all deeply and will be missed. May she rest in love till you see her again.

    Momma May or we would call each other Wife-in- law was a one of kind woman. Her and our other Wife in law Shirley Edwards always knew wherever our kids were and which one of us was taking care of them we knew that they were loved and being treated like our own. Night before she passed we spoke and she kept telling me to take care of her babies. That was the kind of loving mother that she was and I will miss my dear friend. Love you wife in law now you have peace. Listen for C J and Shane’s loud laughter.

    Ms. Capps was wonderful. She was caring, supportive, and always there to help anyone who needed her. She cared about the students and staff at Oak Grove Elementary and gave so much of herself to us. She will be deeply missed. My prayers go out to her entire family. May GOD comfort and bless you all.

  • Barbara Johnson Posted July 10, 2021 8:43 AM

    Ms Capps was an Angel on earth. She was truly a servant in the truest sense of the word. Her greatest joy was when she was caring for someone else. Ms Capps had that special instinct that just knew what a person needed, and provided without being asked. Although I only knew her for about 10 years, she has been my friend since the first day we met. I will miss her dearly. Prayers for her family and friends, as we all find comfort in knowing that Ms May is now at Peace.

    • Rochelle L Smith Posted July 11, 2021 2:38 PM

      Thank you and now she has real wings as an angel to watch over all of us she was one of a kind and I strive to be just like her in every way
