How to describe Mavis she’s One of a kind person —- she meant so much to me I can’t stop thinking about you. The last few months she’s helped me in so many ways I don’t even know how to say it —-
She has put me in a very positive way — and as far as her onion bread goes you’re right it is amazing she makes it every time we asked for it—-
I 💗 you Mavis and I will miss you dearly RIP
Yup

I’m am sorry to here about Mavis passing. She was one of the kindest, funniest people I knew. I met her at State Farm many years ago. I was thinking of calling her and to get together again. I’m sorry I haven’t. She loved her family very much and she was very proud of them all. Much Love, May you be comforted by knowing she loved you all very much. ❤️
