Mrs. Laverne Hunt was a blessing to my family, as was her husband Clyde Hunt. I loved them both dearly, and so did my parents. When the house across the street came up for sale and we learned that the Hunt's had purchased it, we were thrilled! The Hunt's were a wonderful addition to the neighborhood. Our families had known each other forever so we were very pleased to have them as neighbors. Mrs. Hunt was a very hard worker and always kept their yard looking great. I am sure she had more energy than I do as she spent many hours working in the yard. When my daddy would call me, he would say "Mrs. Hunts out working in her yard and Clyde is walking laps around the block". Mrs. Hunt helped me so much when my daddy got sick and never minded me asking her for a favor. My parents loved them both, just as they loved both of my parents. I loved when she would come visit when I went to my childhood home. After my parents were both gone, she and I visited very time I was in El Dorado, and we would talk on the phone when I was not in town. I loved her with all of my heart. I will miss this precious lady. She was kind and considerate and just an all around good person. Karen and Holly, I am so sorry for your current losses. God's Blessings to you and your families. Love to all, Lisa
