To the family death is something that we are not ready for. But God's plan is not our plan he will take his angels home when they are tired and need to rest. Jewel while you up there in his kingdom look for your nephew Nicholas and let him know that your are there to see after him. Stay strong family and remember that Jewel is in a better place now.

I had the privlidge of working with this special lady/teacher for 13+years and taught some of her grandchildren myself... and she taught some of mine... We all will miss you ... Peace is with you now in the arms of Jesus.

The PESG Family will miss Ms. Tibbs very much. She has been a substitute with us since 2015 and she has provided the schools with excellent service. She has touch the lives of many staff members and students. Her willingness to go in at the last minute to assist has been one of her greatest attributes. We only wish there were more like her. We will miss her and we will continue to pray for her family.
