My dear friend Virla we became best friends had several classes together. We always went everywhere together to all the games to support the class matess at Hoover High School and we all enjoyed having pizza afterwards. Shortly after graduation Virla met her soulmate Ronnie and I was blessed with being her maid of honor and she became a wife and mother. Virla Neithinger was a great woman and bestie and I will never lose my love for you and maybe we can have pizza together again someday ❤🤗 RIP my dear friend

The memory of Virla’s Family for me and my hubby FRED Eichelbarger goes back to our first memory of your Dad, AC Lawrence—
Fred got acquainted with AC at the parts counter in Fresno Ca, over coffee at APED, Inc. Where he also got acquainted with Virla’s Brother, Arnold Lawrence. We became close friends of Arnold and his family where we also got acquainted with Carl and Amies Dad Ricky Stanley...then Amie and Carl got married! I first met Virla at Ashley Lawrence’s baby shower, hosted by Brittany Lawrence. What a lovely lady Virla was! Loved by many and blessed by so much love —a legacy to cherish and a challenge to all of us, her family and friends to give it our all to strive to also make Heaven our home for that great reunion day when we all get to Heaven...what a day that will be. To Carl, Amie, Ronnie, Arnold and Jeff and all their families our Love and prayers go before you as you walk these lonely roads missing Virla in your lives. More than that, please let me invite each of you to make plans for being with her again in eternity by simply acknowledging and accepting Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour. It is as simple as praying a sinners prayer and asking him to come into your heart ❤️ and as personal as whispering to Jesus “ Please forgive me for I have sinned ...come into my heart Lord Jesus”...He will walk the rest of your days here on earth. He has already prepared a place for us in Heaven where Virla is also there awaiting our arrivals! Heaven Awaits...Love 😇❣️ to ALL!

We met Verla shortly after her husband had died. She as feeling alone and we started the "We". Her and God. Verla was the 1st volunteer at the Rapha Christian Counseling office. She was loved by everyone she greeted. She had a contagious laughter and will be remembered for her love of her son's Carl and Ronnie and her love for God. May you rest in peace and let perpetual light shine upon you.

I appreciate the times I got to spend visiting with your mother and dad and you boys.Family is so important and I believe we should never take it for granted as we never know when the GOOD LORD is going to remove us from this world then those of us that are right with GOD will get to spend all of eternity with GOD.But as long as we're here on Earth we should love others and take care of family...❤️
Love you guys, Uncle Dave
