  2. I grew up with her kids. Back when we were all growing up in our little “hood” it didn’t matter what street we wondered off to the Mothers/Mommas like her always had an eye an ear us. If we did wrong better believe that the phones lines to our parents were ringing off the hook and allot of times the good ones like her would walk you to your door. This generation now needs to wake up learn from the Great ones the legions like a Nelie. It does take a village and a few good strong Mommas like her. R.I.H
