    I have known her for a short time through my father Bishop Thomas Frazier married to her sister Ruby J Frazier. She was a kind and sweet person. She has generous heart and loving spirit. She stayed in Atlanta for a while with her sister. I'd visit for time to time as she began treatment. She has a positive mind and trust and believed in God. She will be missed.
