"Mrs, Mercedes will be dearly missed!
I grew up on Washington St. and as a child we played hide and go seek a lot and one of our favorite places to hide was in her flowers. She would hollar at us to stay out of her flower bed! But for some reason I think she made the flower bed bigger for us to hide in!
An Angel is resting!"

"Patricia and Family, you have been blessed with love from an amazing woman of strength, dedication, and passion. Her guidance encouraged you to reach for the stars and her belief in you was boundless! Nana's nurturing and life have spanned decades, generations, and socio-economic and racial boundaries. For the people she touched, Phyllis Johnson will always remain a role model. Her sayings ("Cakes are done and people are finished") and her Christmas cookies remain fond memories. Patricia, may you be be a living example of the type of woman she was and the type she hoped you would become. Love you!"
