Necie was a people person and never met a stranger. She loved everyone she met and touched many hearts. She was known to give people her last dime and opened her home to anyone who was in need from shelter, hunger or clothing. Necie was known to speak from the heart and mind. She would make sure everyone heard and understood every word. Her famous quote to everyone was “You see what I’m saying” and if you didn’t, by the time she got done you would.
