Students thank BC music teacher with song

In a touching tribute to their former music teacher, students touched by Mary Jane Hughes played "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" at her funeral mass Monday, Dec. 2.

Hughes passed away on Thursday, Dec. 29, after a battle with brain cancer, and having her students perform at her mass was one of her wishes.

She taught music and string instruments in Bethlehem schools since 1982 before going on medical leave in 2010.

Organizers of the event wanted to pass on thanks to all the students who came out to play. A video of the song can be viewed below.
