  1. Such a lovely and gracious lady. May she rest in peace. And now she is with her beloved husband.

  2. To all of LaVern’s Family,
    I will always rememberthe first time I met your parents. They were so welcoming and friendly. Your Mom went out of her way to make me feel at home. We remember her smile and positive outlook on life. She was a great example on how to live life as a good Christian. You have our deepest sympathies, love and prayers. God Bless!
