    Aunt Ocia was one of my favorite aunts and I have so many fond memories of her and her family. May God give her family and friends his peace and comfort during this time of mourning her passing.

  2. Thyra Polk Harmon says:

    So sad to hear of Aunt Ocia’s passing. She was such a sweet lady!

  3. Sharon Whitaker says:

    I have always admired Aunt Ocia’s strength and love she had for her children and other family members. She welcomed me into the “Whitaker clan” even before I married Lomax. I loved her dearly and had a lot of respect for her. May peace come quickly to the family.

  4. So grateful to have been there in spirit if not in person. Appreciate the funeral home being able to video it.
