Mrs. Abernathy was my 6th grade elementary teacher at Finch Elementary School in McKinney. Her parting gift to every student was "The Good News" new testament. I believe that even back then it took courage on her part to do something so bold as to share the Word of God. Mrs. Abernathy was a loving and wonderful teacher and person. I plan to follow her christian example, I plan to follow Jesus! Thank you God for making Mrs. Abernathy a part of my life. --- Danny Daniel Villa, Jr., December 7, 2011 so sorry about bobbye. her and dave's family were so a good part of the nort baptist family for so many good years. bobbye was so good to my children as they grew up in the church. she was a person who always had a loving smile for everyone. may god bless dave and his wonderful family. davis wayne,deloris and family davis wayne fowler, March 13, 2009 I am so sorry for your loss.
