One of the anticipated events for black children growing up in Mandarin was the annual Christmas pageant at the nearby First Baptist Church. The rehearsal of 1967 stands out to me.

Baby Brendella James was chosen to be the baby Jesus.
When the shepherds came to greet the 'Christ child', Nita yelled in her infamous booming
voice: ” Don't you drop my baby “ !. As in countless situations before and after this incident,
the children roared with laughter. They didn't see that coming.

So that is an excellent legacy to leave behind … keep everyone laughing.
Nita reminded my mother of Lucy Ricardo, a fictitious character of The Lucy Show.
A natural comedienne with zest for life.
