Pray for me and I'll pray for you. Mavis was a true woman of God. She was the yard sale/thrift store queen. Her family welcomed me into their home years ago. I was invited to family functions. Mavis will be missed by many that knew her. I'm glad that I got to know Nanny. Pray for me and I'll pray for you.
Love, Lana
