Nancy Beth and family,

Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. I've been a newspaper writer (sports) since 1986, thanks to Mary Beth and her profound influence on me as a student at Conroe High. Everywhere I've worked -- Denver, Orlando, San Jose, CA and now the San Francisco Chronicle -- I can tell you that she is largely responsible for everything I've accomplished in my career. Mary Beth lit my fire and made me what I am. I visited her several years ago when she still taught at Conroe High, to thank her for everything she had done for me as a young journalist. I only hope she knew just how much she meant to me. She was my inspiration, my mentor, my idol and my friend. Everything I've done as a journalist, I've done in the hopes of making her proud. I am so, so saddened by her loss.

Much love to you all,

Nancy Gay

My heartfelt condolences to Ms. Perkins family. There are few people in your life that you can truly say made a difference in the person you are today. Mary Beth was one of those people in my life. I will never forget the smile that lit up the entire room. Or the laugh that melted any worries away. She had a way with words that helped me find my way so many different times. She was more than a mentor to me, she was also a friend. I know that I am enriched by having known her, and her legacy will live in my heart for a lifetime.

Dear Nancy Beth and family,

So sorry to hear of MB's (as I fondly called her) death. I know the family will miss her greatly. She was a good friend and a devoted and dedicated teacher. She always made me laugh and made the day-to-day trials and tribulations of teaching much easier. One year she gave me a small framed adage, which hangs just above the light switch in my bedroom. It says, "Good friends listen with their hearts" which is what she did so many time to me and so many others.....friends, co-workers, and students. It is a constant reminder to of her friendship, and it reminds me to do the same thing....Listen with my heart.

Much love and sympathy to the family. Mary Beth Hall was such a ray of sunshine. We grew up and went to school so many years together and had fun in the Band together. Mary Beth was one of the faces I always looked to see at the CHS Class of 67 Reunions. She will be missed by so many. God bless the family. My heart goes out to them in this time of sadness. May Christ give them comfort in this time of sorrow.

We are the parents of just one of the many students that "Ms. Perkins" touched with her life. She encouraged and nurtured her dream of majoring in journalism in college. She taught her students self-reliance and independence but was always willing to spend extra hours working with them. Our daughter has a successful and exciting life in the communications field in our nation's capital, and the skills she learned from this special teacher played a big part in allowing her to achieve her goals.
