    Hi Mamie. Sorry I didn't get to see you before God called you. Save a place for me. I love you.

  2. Andy and Sherry Howell

    Auntie Mamie was such a kind and thoughtful person. She remembered our birthdays and our anniversary every year. We really enjoyed those special times when we got to see her here in Arizona at Hap and Vaunette's home. Andy had a special place in his heart for his Auntie Mamie. Missy and I were lucky enough to be included in her exclusive circle. We will miss her. Rest in peace sweet Mamie. Love, Andy, Sherry and Missy

    Auntie Mamie was my grandma Vaunette's sister. She always remembered her great niece's birthday and was a very caring and beautiful soul. I imagine her and my grandparents are having a grand ole reunion. Love you Auntie Mamie. RIP.
