|Let the memory of our Mudear, Ms. Eddie B., be with us forever. . . .|
"Dearest Faye and Jean,
I heard that your dear mother had moved from Earth to Glory yesterday-the day after the celebration. She was always so kind -always welcomed me into her presence with a warm smile and a warm, delicious dish. The food at our wedding (33 yrs ago) was no exception. Jesse's and my prayers are with you, Reggie, Rhonda, & their children.."
"Thank you Mother Eddie B. Johnson for your service. You did it well and you did it with a smile."
""Ms. Eddie B" will truly be missed. I met her when I was 13 years old. She was one of our grandmothers at Praise of Zion. She took care of us (especially our hunger pangs) every Sunday. She even made me my very own strawberry mountain after giving birth to Georgette. Ms. Eddie B. will never be forgotten. Be encouraged!Gwen Redmond."
"Alice you did an amazing job caring for your Mother. She was truly blessed to have you in her life. I knew your Mom briefly from my childhood - she was an amazing cook (I will never forget her homemade lemon ice cream). I am praying that God will comfort you and your family with wonderful memories."
"A woman great in her love, great in her life, great in her works, great in simplicity and great in her gentleness.
She was an attender, a pillar, a wing, a power, a giver, a goer, a doer, a supporter, a soldier of the cross, a worker, a friend and indeed a helper.
Eddie B. possessed hands to help others, feet that hasten to those in need, eyes that saw misery and want, ears that listen"
"Jean and Alice; Please accept my family's condolences. It is our prayer the Lord will comfort and strengthen you as only He can. I smile now as I am reminded of all the times we spent together and, particularly, those times with Ms Eddie Bell. May her soul rest in eternal peace."
"Ms. Eddie B,
You were funny and a God fearing woman of GOD. You were friends with my Mom Mrs. Gloria Ricks. Now when you arrive tell her hello and you guys continue to talk and praise the Lord. Thank You for what you done here on earth."
"I truly miss Ms. Johnson. She is gone; but will never be forgotten. So many memories, especially those of her & her man as she called him(Quinton). My heart is truly heavy right now; but I know that God will give us all the strength to carry on. Much love to all of you and be blessed!"
"THE ONLY GRANDMA I KNOW. LOVE HER SOOO MUCH. SHE TAUHGT ME SO MUCH ABOUT THE BIBLE AND GOD. SHE IS THE REASON I AM ON THE LEVEL I AM WITH GOD. THE BEST TEACHER I KNOW. EDDIE B. JOHNSON MY GRANDMA WILL BE TRUELY MISSED. ONLY GOD KNOWS BEST. I LOVE YOU.ALEXIS PARTEE"
"Ms Alice, Michael and I are with you like you have been here for us. Your mom was blessed to have a daughter who gives unselfishly. Great is your reward. Great be your peace. Love, The Hills"
"My Lady of Hats

Giving~my gold cross necklace. Hat of Commitment~to do my very best. Hat of Praise~showing me at all times Praise God. Thank You My Lady."
"Alice, your mom's life is truly a testimony of what is written in Psalm 91:16; "I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation." May God continue to reward you and your family with His promises."
"*Eddie Bell my bell*
Eddie Bell my bell
Tough and wasn't taken no stuff.
Eddie Bell my bell
Could take a little and make a lot.
Eddie Bell my bell
Knew her bible and wanted you to know it too.
Eddie Bell's bell rang loud....
And even though she's gone
I still can hear her ringing

"I met an angel in May 2012, in the person of Mrs Eddie B. Johnson. My staff and myself had the pleasure of serving Mudear on a daily basic's. To know her is to love her. She had a wonderful attitude and loved to sing gospel songs. Mudear will be missed. It is said to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, rest in peace Mudear I will see you on the other side."
"Alice, May God's peace continue to be with you and your family. Your Mother made a lasting impression with my brother Mike when they worked together at the Top of 100 Country Club when he was only 15."
"Mudear spent several wonderful years in the Alzheimer's Day Center (http://www.alzheimersdayservices.org/wordpress1/)called Dorothy's Place and the last week of her life in the care of the caring folks at Crossroads (http://www.crhcf.org/Default.aspx). In lieu of flowers we encourage you to donate to these agencies in her name via their websites, and we will post in the Gallery here."
