    Sis Gatlin was a very special christian. In all the years I have known her everything about her life has been an inspiration to me. Her voice has had the kindest tone. I along with many others will miss this sweet child of God.

    Ms Mary was an inspiration to so many. Her passing is mourned by many friends and family. She will be truly missed but will be basking in the glory of paradise with out Lord and Savior. Love you Ms Mary to the moon and back and the void you leave in my life is substantial. Rest in peace. I will never forget you. It was truly a pleasure to sit with you and visit with you.
