  7. Condolences to my family especially Teresa and Rayvonne. My “Auntie Liz” loved you dearly. I remember coming over there and her babysitting me when I was just younger as if it were yesterday. One thing for certain she ALWAYS was cooking something good, as that house always smelled good. I will miss her but we know she is in a better place and eating or cooking something unimaginable. I love you cuz and will keep you in prayer.

  8. To Rev. Teresa Rembert, Rayvonne and family,
    You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult and very trying time. Mother Griffea was such an inspirational woman of God, and I remember when me and my family attended Rev. Griffea’s church on Bowman Street. Mother Griffea is fine now; she is in the loving arms of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. You take care and we will keep praying for you!
    With Love,
    Ruthie Johnson and Sons
