The mural painted on the wall in Kim Reeves' classroom at Quitman Upper Elementary School depicts the ocean. There are fish of all types swimming around. There's even an island off to the side with a palm tree.
It's a calm, peaceful setting where the students in her classroom can sit and read books. Kim's mother, Ramona Smith, painted the mural with help from some friends.
To Ramona, it is a gift to her daughter and a memorial to her granddaughter, Kim's daughter, Alex, who died June 24, 2000, from injuries suffered in a car wreck.
