We were so sorry to hear about Lawana. We have known her a long time through our German Singing Club. She had a beautiful voice and was always glad that she sat behind us to lead us.
Always so friendly. We will surely miss her very much.

Our deepest Sympathy to Lawrence and the family.

Lawana would always greet me with such a gracious smile. Her beautiful voice was so wonderful to hear when singing with the Houston Liederkranz even though she did not like singing the German words. She is truly missed.

We are truly saddened by the loss of such a wonderful and strong lady. She always had kind words and never meet a stranger. Our whole family enjoyed her and Mr Waganhauser's kindness and humor from our son Cody Lewis and T30. Cody adored Mrs Waganhauser because she always had outstanding values like his grandmother. Our hearts are heavy and prayers are expressed for healing comfort. The Lewis family

I am so sorry for the loss of your wife, mother and grandmother. She was always a gracious host when I visit your home and 3T0's banquets. She, Corrina Blume, and my mother were an awesome trio.. Transplant Docs aren't agreeable to any distance travel yet amid this pandemic thing. Please accept my condolences in lieu of being there in person. Love, Len.

Mrs. wahenhauser was a special neighbor for 28 years. She was there for us when our girls were young and always kept up with our growing family through the years. She will be missed.

I am privileged to have known you. If there was a picture of, “behind every man is a better woman,” it would be your’s. Thank you for all our conversations. I learned so much from you.
