    Please accept the condolences of the Jones family. Mrs Bovell touched our lives more than words can say. She gave our son Christopher additional lessons in preparation for the common entrance more than 15 years ago, but we have never forgotten her kindness and gift as one of the best teachers we ever had the fortune of meeting. Mrs Bovell, ways more than a teacher. She was motherly, kind yet firm and very compassionate. She taught out of love…..We are truly sorry to have lost her. May she rest in eternal peace🙏🏽

    I want to express sympathy at your lost .I also want to share with you the hope of the resurrection. You will see your love one again. The Bible’s promise at John 5: 28, 29 is real “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out….” So as you grieve hold on to this promise. A better world is coming. May God grant you comfort. 2 Cor 1;3,4.

    Mrs. Bovell taught my daughter Waneisha between 2012-2013 in class 3&4 , she was very dedicated and caring teacher.I was very shocked when I got the news. The last time I saw her was in the supermarket and I told her that I wanted to see that she enjoyed her retirement and travel the world and that she deserves to enjoy her retirement. To her family and love ones, my deepest sympathy
