Don & family,
You have our deepest condolences and we feel certain that you have all of Ms Johnnie Mae's beautiful memories to remember her by. She was one of the most pleasant beautiful souls I have ever known. Her spirit was very genuine. Her beauty was not only spiritual, it was physical as well. It was truly a pleasure to have known her.

I am very sorry for your loss. I grew up with her as one of my favorite guides at Mosley Chapel and she will be greatly missed. My prayers are with the family.

I will always remember Ms. Johnnie Mae. She was in the “village” that helped raise me at Mosley Chapel CME church. She had style, grace and a beautiful laugh. When I became an attorney, she and Mr. Skinner gave me a boost of confidence when they called for my services. They continued their friendships with my parents, Oscar and Frances when they moved back Edgewood,TX. Don was a big brother and “Liz” a little sister. She was loved and will be missed.
