  1. I am so very sorry to learn of Mrs. Watts’ passing, she was such an awesome lady in all ways. She always was so very willing to help me in school. She loved my daddy, Max Miller, who was the high school principal for years. He thought the world of her too. He passed away in 1994 in North Carolina.
    Please accept my family’s deepest sympathy.
