Guestbook

To the spirit of my dear friend, Ms. Beck, I have always told you how special you are to me and now I want others to know as well. You were the best teacher that M.F Nichols High School ever had. Over the years, you told me how often other students would also tell you the same, when they saw you. You were not only my teacher, you were my friend. You were a comfort to me whenever I was hurt or sad; you gave me advice whenever I was in need. You listened attentively with a kind ear, but you were a best friend to my mother, Mable Mcgee. You were her best friend until the end. We love you with all of our heart. I am going to miss talking to you on the phone, and not physically seeing you when I am in Biloxi. We wanted you to remain here doing well, but God wanted you more. Rest in peace and your spirit will always remain with me. Love Always, Dovie Carter

On March 15, 2015 Heaven's gates opened up to receive a woman whom I have known since I was a very small child, Ms. Victoria Beck. I have so much love in my heart for this beautiful woman. Not only was she my neighbor as a child but she also was my science teacher at Nichols Jr. High. I have so many fond memories of Ms. Beck. I am so thankful to God for putting her in my path of life. A beautiful soul has left us to start a new journey of everlasting life. To the family I would like to say don't be sad, she lived a long glorious full life and now she is moving onto the next chapter.

To the family of our beloved teacher MS Beck. We will miss our teacher and friend. From the days of baby sitting her kids, being her students, getting married and moving away, James and I always carried with us her presence and always loved seeing her when we returned to Biloxi.
