Condolence & Memory Journal

I am sorry to hear the passing of Auntie Lucy. Dennis and I were so young in the early 70's as we played together. Auntie Lucy had an infectious laugh and was a wonderful "mom" to both of us. She always brightened the Ben Tillman neighborhood with her smile and laughter. Rest in peace Auntie. You touched many lives, especially mine!

My heart is saddened by the passing of Ms. Erese. Met her back in the mid to late 1970's. She was our egg roll lady. They were the bomb. She will be truly missed by my family. Sending prayers of peace and comfort to her family.
