Big Mama,

God blessed me to have such a strong woman like you to be huge part of my life. You were the first person to hold me when I was born. I will always remember how you use to dress up Janea and I for the holidays. I use to love going to see you out in the country and spending the weekends with you. You were a matriarch in so many peoples lives and touched every person you came across. l can't express enough of how much you mean to me you are my God Mother and I love you tremendously. You did your due diligence here on earth now may you rest in heaven. Until we meet again I love you forever!

Love your,
JET - Jessica Elease Thomas

I will never forget Hattie. We developed a close friendship at work and found out we had so much in common. She was my traveling companion for years. Everyone was going to have a good time when she was around. She loved people and never met a stranger. I don’t know how she thought up the things she’d say, but I got to where I could look at the expression on her face and tell she was preparing to say something crazy! Besides being the funniest person I ever knew, she was a very genuine friend. She helped me through several serious illnesses, a divorce, and the death of my own beloved mother. She loved my only child, and she was interested in his life. We all have funny Ms. Hattie stories, and we shared many of them with each other the last couple of days. I will forever miss her wit and humor. She is irreplaceable.

Ms. Stinson, I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. She and I were born in the same year post WWII. I know the sadness you feel at this time. I miss my mother an d father everyday. Cherish the memories you have as you stand strong for your children and family. I know you will find peace as the days bring you happy thoughts of your mom.

Ms Massey had a major impact in my life when I was a young, new officer at Mountain View. She helped shape me into the woman and officer I have become. She took me under her wing and showed me how to be strong and understanding. She was always so positive every time I saw her or ran into while out shopping. Although she would giggle at me for having a young son while my daughter was almost grown, she would hug him and tell him how handsome he was. I loved her and I know she made an impact in every life she touched. May God comfort her family and friends. RIH

The angels are singing a little louder today since this fine lady arrived in heaven. I will forever remember Sister Hattie with a big heart of L O V E ! From the moment my family met her she was an inspiration. She was always a special part of our church family from Teaching Crafts during Vacation Bible School, Decorating the Christmas Tree and gifts for the children, Baskets for Easter and many kind hearted full of love gestures. Our hearts are heavy but we know she is with our Lord and Savior, Jesus! Until we meet again, rest easy Sister Hattie. Her loving family is in our thoughts and prayers.
