My condolences  to the family  of one of the most beautiful  souls I have known in my life time.
Evelyn  was my best friend before my 20s and well after.
She has always been good to me and knew the right things to say at the right times.
She would always scold me when I needed it..to get my life together
And be a good person  for my children when I was young and oh so selfish.
My favorite  memories  are of being with her and the laughter  and positivity  to brought in my life ed even when things where bad.
Her presence here on earth will be missed as she was loved by many
She will not ever be forgotten
We know for sure she is one of Gods  beautiful  Angel's holding hand in heaven...for she was an angel here on earth..
I will miss you mom..always have and always will.
We will meet again on that heavenly  shore.

I remember when I was a child grandma would sing us to sleep singing dust on the Bible. She has helped us all through many rough times and never gave up on any of us. Miss you more than ever grandma!!!!!!

Words will never explain how much my grandma meant to me, just like Pamela Mitchell said she would scold me when it was needed, and congratulate me when I made her proud. I remember when I was a little boy I would try to lie my way out of trouble and just when I thought I got away with it she would pull me over to her and tell me I’m gonna look into your eyes and if your lying I’ll know by the little white light in you eyes. Then I was in trouble because 9 times out of 10 I was lying. I love you dearly grandma and hate to see you leave us but I know I’ll see you in heaven some day and more then looking forward to it

Her obituary could never have been written any better I recall family trip to the casino in Detroit for our brother's birthday we rented a limo everyone came back broke except for her when questioning how did you come back with money she answered I spent $20 and put the rest in my pocket that was just one of the good days we had with her I hope she's resting in peace we don't need to ask God to watch over her we need to ask her to watch over us.

The exception that should be the standard has passed but it's not what she took with her but left us with that is her legacy. She was the essence of safety, warmth,  and love no matter where you came from or who you were. A lighthouse is perfect because she was a beacon. Light, hope, love, and hilarity. She was ornery and witty as well. Her apartment looked small but was a mansion inside. She was the richest, strongest woman I have ever known, or will ever meet in my lifetime. As for memories, don't go past the black line in the sidewalk, eat what you are given, bed time stories or songs, her huge bed, bread cereal... too many but those should spark some. My grandmother was the peacemaker and a child of God.

MoMA's best trait was love. I don't think anyone could love as much as she did. Everyone who lived in this neighborhood loved her. She would sit on her porch from sun up to sun down and people who lived in this neighborhood would sit and talk to her for hours. When I was told that her kidneys were shutting down but her heart was strong, all I could think about was her heart was always strong. The love that poured from her heart was what kept it beating. I know we all feel love for other people, but I think God poured so much love into her heart that it was overflowing. She was my best friend. She was the glue that held this family together. I thank God that He blessed me with moma, she was the perfect mother and grandmother. I won't say goodbye,  I will only say I will see you soon!

You loved us so much that you held on tight, until all your strength
was gone, and you could no longer hold on. Finally you gave your
hand to God and slipped away quietly without telling us bye. You have
been there always to support and guided many through life.
