So sorry to see that Mrs. Sailor passed away. Ms Jewell was my school bus driver, and I also was a member of Buffalo Ridge Baptist when I was growing up in Gray Station. My Momma and Daddy and Grandparents knew Ms Jewell. Please except our deepest condolences. Ms Jewel's daughter- in-law, Jan is such a sweet person, and I miss seeing her. A great family. So sorry for your loss. God Bless you'all. Sincerely, Regina Shipley Hill
