    Carolyn and Patsy, I was lucky enough to have met Mozelle and work with you ladies when you came to Collier Park a few years ago. Your love for your mom was so honorable. She was a lovely little lady. I am truly sad to read of her passing, but I am certain that she had a wonderful life, filled with much love from her caring children and extended family. My condolences to you all.

    Our condolence to the Family:
    God well knows the pain we suffer and he cares. Exodus 3:7; 1Peter 5:7
    Look forward to the future with confidence, Acts 24:15 says, ...”there is going to be a resurrection...”.
