It has saddened my heart to know that my dear cousin has been called home, I know she is wearing her wings because she was one of the most loving people I know. She will be in my heart always and I will love her forever, lord if I could sit and talk and love on her one more time. So long my dear cousin, hopefully we will see each other again, love you

I have fond memories of Willie Mae who was such a great help to my mother, Anna Searcy, for many years while I was still growing up at home on Clay St. in Thomasuille. Wick, Ash, and I were delighted to see her again about 5 years ago. I tried to call her recently only to find out from Glenda that she was now near Jax, Fl. I had hoped to see her again before one of us departed this life here on Earth. My best to all of her family and friends. She will be missed; such a wonderful spirit. My family will always remember and appreciate Willie Mae.
