I so loved Aunt Lajuan, always a precious and happy soul who was brutally honest 😂. My favorite childhood memories were from the many holidays spent at her and Uncle Donald’s. I feel so thankful to have had her in my life and was privileged to have spent treasured moments with her over the past few years; pure joy...That said, my heart aches with all of those precious family and friends who are grieving ..May God envelop you all in His healing comfort..

One of my favorite memories as a child was visiting aunt Lajuan and Uncle Donald. When God created her ,he gave her an extra portion of Joy and she brought joy to all .Her gift of hospitality was also one of her distinctive features as well. Being the last matriarch of the family she left us a shinning example to be joyful always an to give thanks in every situation. To be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord. She will be missed.
