  4. Dorothy Parsons Says:

    You were a blessing to know at First Baptist Church, Jacksonville, and also getting to live in your neighborhood a block away. Thanks for inviting us to your last 2 birthday parties. You are an inspiration to all of us. See you in heaven.

  5. Dorothy Parsons Says:

    I am thankful to hear of your generosity to the Women’s Missionary Auxiliary at our church over the years. Your friends told me that anytime there was a fund raiser for missionaries that you would always match the total from the others giving for the missionaries. You also loved and supported the BMAA Theological Seminary where my husband, Dr. Greg Parsons, has been a professor almost 30 years. We are blessed to know you, Ms. Eunice, and will be missed.

    Her lyrics are tielsems and as if this, her unforgettable voice, her talent as a musician and the many classics she bore into the world were not enough, she stood up for who she was and the many like her, a woman, a black woman and a musician whose pride was part of everything in her life, her music included and not something to be displayed only at political rallies and marches. What an original, and the world is sadder without her wisdom and energy in it. Thank God her music lives on. It does. I was talking to a kid not that long ago who quoted I Want A Little Sugar In My Bowl to me. Of course he’s a music buff but I found it inspiring that a 15 year-old would find words that spoke to him in a song written so long before his parents were even born.
