    Sending my sincere and heartfelt condolences to the Riddick and Fields family. Miss Mazzie, her children and grandchildren were special neighbors to my family and I when I was a boy growing up on 30th St. in the 1960 and 70’s. Good memories that I’ll always cherish. .
    May God continue Bless you.

    My condolences to the family. I met Ms. Mazzie in 1970 when I was in the Navy and she was living on 30th Street. Over the years I stayed in touch with her late daughter Beatrice, and Ms, Julie and I always asked about Ms. Mazzie. I will continue to pray for the family.
