Mazie was one of a kind! She was smart, gracious, generous, witty, sometimes ditzy and always fun to be around. We grew up next door to each other and when I moved to Atlanta in 1980, she and Derrick were there for me like a sister and brother. My heart is so heavy right now but my mind knows she's in a better place. Rest in peace my dear, dear friend!

Derrick, Trina, Kathy, Michelle, Mrs. Buggs ... I am so sorry for your loss.

I was an honor to call Mazie a sister/friend. She was positively resolute in her quest for living, and I was in awe of her strength and resilience. My condolences and blessings are with the entire family, as you share loving memories.

Beloved Derrick, Katrina, Kathy, Mom, Michelle'and Family “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in Yeshua. Mazie has been one of HIS Chosen and she ran a good race, she finished her works and believed in One Love for Jesus the Christ and His Kingdom. Take quiet moments for your selves allow GOD'S Holy Spirit, just as He has always been with my sister Mazie, He is with you. Remember: Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire. If you did, what would there be to look forward to? Be thankful when you don’t know something, for it gives you the opportunity to learn. Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times, you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations, because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge, because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you’re tired and weary, because it means you’ve made a difference.
It’s easy to be thankful for the good things. A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks. Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles, and they can become your blessings.
I.H.S. our family is here for you 'auntie de'Lores.
