I remember her from First Methodist Church in Prichard . She was a friend of my mother's and my sister's fourth grade teacher. Ricky lit the candles at my wedding. She was a special lady. May God bless each of you.

My deepest sympathies go out to her family. I had not seen Mrs. McLean in years, but have many happy memories of the entire family when we attended Prichard First United Methodist together. (My grandmother was Zora Mosley)
