Aunt Addie you will definitely be Missed. I would call Aunt Addie and just hearing that sweet voice on the other end of the phone was so peaceful. I may not have physically seen your smile, but when I would talk to you, I sure felt it. It was All Joy in the entire conversation. The conversations were not long and the calls were far and in between, however when we did talk it was the lasting of the smile, the joy and Aunt Addie sweet spirit that I will always remember

I Love Aunt Addie. You will always be in my heart and Continue to Rest in God's Heavenly Arms

Your Neice Linda

As my sister, Annette Davis stated we have so many memories of my mom. She put God first in her life and then family. She was a giving person. She would help people if she could and would definitely keep people in prayer. She loved everybody. She would say we still have to love people even if they miss treat us because God is going to judge them and us for our actions. She would say we need to get our souls right because we don’t know when and how we are going. She told me several times that she wants to go be with Jesus when she died. I believe that her soul is resting with Jesus. I had the pleasure of being my mom’s caregiver for 9 years. We enjoyed watching Match Game show during the day. Of course she watched the world and local news. My mom enjoyed a few ministers on the radio. I will miss her. Mom, we love you and may your soul Rest In Peace.

I have so my wonderful memories of my mother. She had a giving heart and a sweet spirit. She loved her family. She taught me how to drive which I am so grateful for. I wasn’t able to see my mom as often as I wanted because of my job but I did manage to see her every Saturday before I went to work . I just loved talking to her and being in her presence. She loved talking about God. She is going to truly be missed. RIP Momma. Looking forward to seeing you on that great day on the other side.
