We adored Ms. Tapley. She was definitely one of a kind. We wish everybody could have a teacher as memorable as she is to the both of us.

To the family we offer our condolences and heartfelt prayers. Ms. Tapley was a jewel to all of us who came through Meredith. She made our P.E. fun and our entry into the athletic world valuable. Her smile was contagious and her energy was spontaneous. We will miss this link in our chain but will cherish her memory forever. RIH Ms. Tapley, Love you! Darwin Pennye

My deepest condolences to the family for your loss. May you draw comfort and hope from God's promise to put an end to all the things that have plagued mankind for centuries including pain, suffering, and death. (Revelation 21:3,4) And his promise of an earthly resurrection. (Isaiah 26:19; John 5:28,29)
