There are no words that can really express my condolences for the home going of Auntie Voila May. The Bible says “earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.” So, we will lean on the Lord, from which cometh all help, and to live on.... with the sweet memories that were made when you were here with us. In The Book of Ecclesiastes, King Salomon wrote “that he searched the world far and near and could not find but one upright man, and woman he found none!” However, I wish he had stayed around long enough to have met you, because he would have changed that verse, because you definitely were a Upright Woman. You were Loved and cherished by all, for your wisdom and guidance throughout our lives! I’ll never forget you, and look forward to seeing you again in Paradise. Love your nephew, Charleston

Auntie was the greatest Aunt anyone could ever ask for. She loved me in a way that only a special angel sent from Heaven could love someone. The memories I have of Auntie are filled with laughs, tenderness, understanding and an unbreakable bond that even in Heaven I can still feel her tender arms and warm smile. My Aunt was small in stature but a giant in her charity and compassion. I will see her again at my appointed time when she will greet me and calm me as I enter into our new home. She will hug me and we will laugh and love and never have to worry about anything ever again. That's when my new life will start and Auntie will be there like she always was. the only thing missing will be the hurt, the pain and the disappointments. If angels have wings I know Auntie was granted the most graceful soft wings heaven has ever fashioned for a woman so deserving of every feather. I love you Auntie always and forever.

Dear Family: The passing of Auntee is a very difficult pill to swallow. However I find comfort in knowing that she is no longer in any pain, and is safe in Jesus’ arms. Auntee played a major role in my life, although I lived in MS. I will always cherish my visits with her, my conversations with her; and her warm, loving, generous, kind spirit. I will never forget our infamous NOLA trip in 1976, Uncle Thomas and her coming to my graduation from medical school in San Francisco in 1990; which meant the world to me. Auntee will truly be missed, but we all have enough memories to last the rest of our lives. May Auntee rest in paradise. Love Always, Perry

My Great Grandmother was one of a kind. She was the person to fight anything thrown at her. She was the type to overcome any obstacle placed in her way. She was stronger than any hulk or man. I loved her. Her love was Jurassic, it overwhelmed me every time I would hug her or kiss her on the cheek. She would always ask me anytime we were on the phone, “When are you coming back to see me.” Such phrases like these warmed my heart as it is always comforting to know you have people that love you. I wish, the times I was there with her, I’d spent the night at her house. But let’s not dwell on the “I wishes” and “I should’ve’s”, let’s celebrate the life of my Great Grandmother. And if I could’ve said one last thing to her… it would be, Thank you for everything.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My dear grandmother, Volia Brown, was truly an angel. Though petite in stature, grandma’s personality was that of a giant. Always ready with a witty comeback, a strong opinion, or a unique observation, grandma was definitely not a shrinking violet and always made her presence known. She loved her friends and family fiercely and unconditionally. When you entered her home, you knew that you were welcome, surrounded by peace and love. Grandma was a women who was full of faith and a dedicated servant of the Lord. She instilled this faith in her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, never letting us forget to place God above all else. Rest well, my sweet gram. Until we meet again.

Volia was a dedicated Lady with Court 234 St. Michael's Knights of Peter Claver and Ladies Auxiliary. She was one of the first members to join. She was not able to participate in her later years, but remained a supportive and faithful Lady of Court 234 and the Ladies of Grace. RIP Lady Volia.
