Ms. Mamie was a blessing to us at Emmanuel Baptist Church. I really enjoyed knowing her and was encouraged by the sincerity I felt when talking with her. She will be missed immensely.

Mamie Lou was an Angel on earth. The years we worked together at Triangle are cherished memories. She was a second Mother to me. Her advice was always the best. Mamie shared her love for all of us, who worked on Blakely Island.
Mamie, you are now with your beloved, Paul and the rest of your family. Love you, sweet Mamie!
