Memories Timeline


  1. I'm so sorry to hear of Mr. Dailey's passing. Prayers for your family. He taught both of my boys at Memorial Parkway Jr High and was the assistant principal at McMeans while my two daughters were there. He was a kind man, understanding, and fair to the students.

  2. My prayers and thoughts for all of you. Carroll was a dear friend. Our years together at MPJH were happy times. God bless all of you as you go though this diffcult time.

  3. Our thoughts and love are with you during this time. I pray you will have sweet memories as you celebrate Carroll.

  4. I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Dailey at S.J. Welsh for many years. What a terrific teacher, role model and friend. My prayers are with Mr. Dailey, Sharon, Kelly and the rest of his family.

  5. I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Carroll. He was such a great co-worker at MPJH and then at Transportation. I know he has left a lasting impression in Katy ISD.

  6. Praying for Sharon and all of your loving family. What an honor it was working with Carroll at MPJH! And, Sharon, how nice it was when Lesley and I hung out with you and Carroll now and then when she was young! You both have a special place in our hearts. I pray for God's perfect peace for you and yours. Annette

  7. I taught with Carroll at Memorial Parkway Junior High and enjoyed every neat and color- coded moment. I never knew a man could be so neat or organized. I especially liked his "fixes" for keeping everything in its place such as gluing a picture frame to the base of his desk lamp so that it would not move! We also enjoyed messing up his desk because it was too neat!

  8. My most sincere condolences for your loss. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 says: "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us". Seek our Creator for the much needed comfort by reading his word. Not only will you receive comfort, but at the same time, be reminded of God's promises for a better future. (John 5:28,29)
