RIP , she was like my daughter , she chose to call me Dad ..she will be missed , Sorry for your loss , God Bless.


I remember the 1st time she dropped the kids off to my house. She had such attitude and swore she was never going to like me and long story short we ended up becoming friends. We tagged teamed one another when it came to raising the kids and dealing with our men. We had a love hate relationship that worked so perfect for us. The truth is I really believe we were meant meet. I am truly lost that she is not going to pull in my drive way bopping her head and singing off key asking Ivy is she ready to go 😭


Jocelyn you were my ride or die baby I will miss everyday I love you with every breath you’re loving husband ❤️😭


Jocelyn was one of my best friends through highschool. If I wasn’t at her house, she was at mine. I remember her parents wanting to meet my parents and so her stepdad at the time suggested we have dinner together, so we did just that. I made spaghetti and we all sat around the table and talked laughed and ate spaghetti and our wonderful friendship blossomed from there. We done a lot together. We were inseparable for years. Over the years we have been in touch off and on through Facebook. I still admire her sass, spunk, and beautiful heart! I’m going to miss her tremendously! My heartfelt condolences to Vicky, Jackie, her children, and husband.

I was so glad to see you when I walked into shop class our junior year. I didn’t know you then but was just happy to not be the only girl. That class was the start of a wonderful friendship. We went through some hard times but most of my memories of us put a smile on my face, some even make me laugh. I’ll always remember the wonderful times. Fly high my dear friend we will meet again.
