I loved to call her Grandma Mozzy. She had a beautiful smile that would light up any room. It was an honor to know such a wonderful woman. Thank you for allowing us to take care of her and to love her as part of our family. We will miss you Grammy but take your rest.

Aunt Moe was a meek soul that loved family. On Saturdays my brothers and sister use to love going to her house to run wild and play with her children while Eddie would sit in his big green chair smiling at us and just kept saying......WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. 😁 She was an important part of my childhood sweet memories. Being in the military it was a rooted tradition to stop by and see my aunt Moe during my visiting home, showing off new family additions, just as it was to see my own mama and Daddy. I love who you were in my life and all aunts should be like you for a nephews . Thank you for the best red kool-aid and bologna sandwiches and chips on Saturday afternoons a boy could ever have. You are an angel and your love for us was so special to me. I will miss your laugh and big hug. Hugs in Glory next time. Rest In Peace. THE # 1 Aunt to all of us.
