Words cannot begin to describe the beauty of a soul that runs deep. She had such a charm and softness. I looked upon her, growing up, like she was family. Loving, caring, and kind. What a beautiful smile she gave to all. God just retrieved his angel home. Peace and comfort.

Mamie was one of the genuinely kind and gracious ladies I have met. She was beautiful inside and out. I only met her in the last 10 years at the Tropicana Casino, and she always made everyone feel special. She was the special one. So sorry for your loss of this wonderful lady.

I worked with Mamie at the casino and I have never met a nicer or more likeable person than Mamie my whole life. She was a joy to be around and the most respectable person I ever knew. She will be greatly missed and my heart goes out to her family and I am so sorry for your loss. Her memory will live on in my heart always and forever.
