Lavenia was my sweet friend. Her family gave me many beautiful memories that have helped to shape who I am. They planted those seeds of early hope in my life which I still carry on throughout my journey today. These relationships are not merely resulting of small acts of kindnesses. They are large epics of compassion. In your loving memory, Lavenia, I am so grateful for being a part of your life. Thank you for your loving-kindness. Thank you for your friendship. We will all miss you. I love you! – Adura

I will never forget Grandma going to the mall in Lake Jackson, Texas. She had Elvis playing on the radio and driving 90 to nothing! I looked over at her and said, "Man Grandma, you don't drive like an old woman!" She looked at me and said, "They were going to slow." So that being said, I guess I know where I get my lead foot from.
She bought me barbies for Christmas one year. I guess I should have been nice and given them to my sister because I did chop all of her barbies hair off.
When I was 19 years old, she was up visiting in Missouri, something happened to me, (I can remember) she stayed up most of the night until I was calm and fell asleep. She was very protective of her grandchildren. She showed true love that night and I will never forget that.
I will always cherish our visits together. She was loved and still is loved. She held this family together and I am forever grateful. I love you, Grandma!!
