    I am so sorry to hear about Mozelle’s passing. She was a wonderful Wife and Mother and Grandmother and Great Grandmother I remember her inviting me for Thanksgiving and Christmas Lunch many times. She was a wonderful cook. She was a spotless housekeeper and a hard working dedicated worker where ever she was employed…My last visit with her was a good one .I know she is with her Lord and Savior as she was a true Christian. .
