Inez Fowlkes we all know her as Mami was my grandmother not biologically. She didn't care about that though. She helped to raise me and my brothers and sister. We are all going to forever remember her and all the good times we all shared. We love you Mami. Thanks for being the loving person you were.

I will always hold to good memories at Aunt Coot's (Inez) playing ball with my cousins and eating her good food along with my mom's Tollie Odom. Aunt Coot & my mom were always up to something, especially at Halloween! She will be greatly missed.

Inez was a good mother in law to me. We shared many laughs, tears, good times and bad times. I could always call on her when I was in need and she was always there for me. You will always hold a special place in my heart Inez.
