"I was very saddened by the passing of Mrs. Echols but also rejoiceful because I knew she knew the Lord. She would travel by foot or by bus never took rides from others. I recall one day seeing her in the peachtree center food court on my way to work. I stopped to have a chat with her and she had just bought some fur boots and she was in good spirits. She had a very good memory. Often recalling my family members birthdays, names  and asking about their well being. Mrs.  Echols would often attend Colonial Hills community meetings and events. She attended bible study on Wednesdays and often attended church service at Mount Glory.  Gonna miss seeing you around. See you again one day. REST IN HEAVEN MY SHERO"
