    I was out of town when I learned of the passing of Ms. Jossie. This makes me very sad. I’ve known her a very long time and have grown to love her very much. I’m sorry I’m not there to tell you in person. Your family is in my prayers.

    I read the news today, and I would just like to say how very sorry I am to hear of Ms. Flowers’ passing. I only met her a few months ago, but I am so very glad I did. She was a very nice lady and I wish I could have assisted her more. Tommie and family, you all have my prayers and sincere condolences.

    I worked many years in dispatch at the Fayetteville Police Department and spoke with Ms Jossie many times. She sure was a sweet lady and I truly enjoyed speaking with her. My condolences to the family. Fayetteville won’t be the same without her.
