  1. My Aunt Davett Was a beautiful intelligent woman and we all know her resume of success. she was helping me with my music also and she told me herself that i could make it in this industry “hands down”. i will miss her wisdom, love, and conversations we had. i wish i could hug her one last time but i know she has her arms around me and the family, and all of her close friends she had! I thank u ALL FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART for your kind words and helping hands in this time of our great loss. God bless and peace be onto u!

  2. I’m just devastated by Davett death. I met her in 1996 when she was working in atlanta and braided her hair up to when she left.We grew very close and even though her work took her away we still called each other.My daugther and i will miss her dearly.

  3. I grew up with Davett from grammar school (Dr Horton) through high school at Barringer High. We lived 3 doors down from each other. Although we all must go, I was taken aback when I got the news today from her sister who I saw for the first time in 30 years. May G-D Most High have mercy on her soul.
