⚘⚘⚘My thoughts and prayers for you Donald, Xandalyn and your Family. I met Jocelyn years ago at MTA and we became friends and book club members. We would lunch together in the tunnel. Book club was so much fun. Don she loved you. When she talked about you I could hear her love in her voice. Oh and Xandalyn you were her world. I remember your going to the Ensemble summer camp and all. You and your Father was Jocelyn's world. My hope is, no I know God will give you all you need. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is with you. Thoughts and Prayers, Patricia Y. "Pat " Mays

I met Jocelyn through my sister-in-law and her friend Dorothy Cleveland. Jocelyn and I worked at McConnell & Jones together for several years and I occasionally attended the birthday luncheons with her, Portia, Gilbert, Linda and Kenneth. She will be sorely missed. I thank God that I had the opportunity to meet her and be a part of her life's journey.

My heart and prayers go out to her family. I knew Jocelyn for many years through her daughter, Xandeyln. I provided childcare for Xandeyln for years until she started school. Jocelyn and Don always treated my daughters, Patrana and Patrina as their own. I wish RIP meant "Return in Person". God bless the family.
