Memories Timeline


  1. Rest in Peace, Lawrence. I will always be grateful you adopted me as your sister. My heart just aches to know we will not meet again. My God bless Mr. Lawrence's family, giving them comfort and healing.

  2. Our hearts and prayers are with you. I remember your dad always being kind and laughing when we came to visit. He never seemed frustrated when all of us kids got noisy or rambunctious when we were playing when we came to visit. I will be praying that sweet memories bring all of your family comfort in the days ahead. We love you.
