  • Our hearts and prayers go out to the family of Mavis, a loving, sweet and kind person. Mavis was a” Dear Neighbor and Friend” to my Mom Ressie Anders . We loved to visit her and Omar. We had many talks about their perfect garden, the beautiful flowers, and all the starts she gave us. I lost my mom in 2011 and I am sure they are talking about their gardens in Heaven now. Mavis will be missed by so many.

    Sincerely, Dave and Ann Lewis
