Summer was a beautiful person, with a great laugh, and gorgeous smile. Her sense of humor was beyond.. Sumner was a point blank person. Summers greatest love was her dog Tank and her best friend Cabrey    Boyington. She had a special friend Khalid Norwood aka (Kool).

We love you Summer Grace infinity and beyond.

Mrs Bain. You were Summer Graces favorite teacher. As soon as she passed I wanted to reach out to you and let you know how you touched her life so. She talked about you all the time. She wanted to see you 2 weeks before she passed. You were more than her teacher. She loved you crazy. You made a huge difference in her life. She shared a lot with me about you and your son. I cant express how much you meant to her. She only graduated from high school because of one person and that person was you. Thank you for being more than just a teacher to my daughter Summer. But also a friend and a mentor and someone she loved with all of her heart. One day Id like to meet with u in person and give you the biggest hugs. Sincerely Summers Mama.

Summer was my student. She always brought a special warmth to our classroom. I always loved her sincerity. Always a smile and always willing to help a fellow student out when needed. We were lucky to know her and Im glad I got to be a small part of her life. God bless you Summer
