  1. My Sister was a very sweet and loving person..with a heart as big as the sun……always there for u…..and always loved you unconditional…..She will be missed so much but never forgotten !!! Love u my oldest sister…..Say hi to Mom and Todd……….and all of our love ones that are there with u…for me……….have a party……..C u soon !!!

  2. I was Volcie’s brother-in-law for 34 years and loved her very much. Volcie endured many trials, tribulations and disappointments in her life but dealt with them one day at a time. I believe that it was her faith in God and his enduring love that enabled her to start each day with hope. I hated to see her suffer these last few years but we do not have control over our fate. It is fortunate that her family and friends can continue with the knowledge that Volcie is with her maker and free from any suffering. I will always remember her sweet smile.

  3. Aunt Volcie was always so sweet and loving. She would do anything for her loved ones. I know her presence will be sorely missed but am glad that she is no longer suffering. Love you! Libby

  4. Aunt Volcie was always good to me…..She was loved and will always be missed…….Now she is with the angels…….GTWC

  5. Aunt Volcie, I’m upset that I haven’t spent much time with you the last few years. We were always so close, and I will always value our relationship. I’ll forever remember the good ole days. The laughing and the great times. I love you Aunt Volcie. You’ll will be missed, but not forgotten.

  6. To Winnie, Ruby and the rest of Volcie’s family: I wasn’t around her a great deal, but I thought that Volcie was one of the nicest people I’d ever met, and I know that you will all miss her. You have my deepest sympathy.


  7. Aunt Volcie was the sweetest woman. She had the most calming, soothing voice and I enjoyed her gentle laugh. She always made you feel welcome and wanted in her home. I know she is now at peace and no longer suffering, just reuniting with her husband and son. God Bless you, Aunt Volcie!

  8. A couple of my loving memories of Volcie was when I was a little girl and she came to visit us in Mi. I remember how much I loved her laugh and the way she called my mother Aunt Ruthie. Before she left to return to Texas she gave me my first jewlrey box which I later passed on to my daughter Tammy. I will love and miss her always,and love to all of the family, Paula

  9. I used to give her and my other favorite aunt and my mom an Angel of some sort every Christmas. Now, she is one. I will miss you Aunt Volcie.

  10. I have so many sweet memories of you, Aunt Volcie: sending you $100 a month and writing you real letters way back when you had loaned Geoff some money to buy a car; coming to your family reunions; the birthday cards with special quarters or gold dollars taped to the inside you would send to all of us; hugs and kisses when we saw each other. Aunt Volcie, I have missed seeing you these past few years. I am happy you are now at peace among the angels in heaven. Love you so and Miss you much, Lisa
