Tammy I am so so sorry for your loss I just today saw it . She sure loved the grandkids I had so much with her she was such a loveable person. I thought about her the other day and was wanting to find her number, I missed her so much when I couldn't come back to work.

My fond memories of Lavonne were sitting in front of her in church. She always greeted me with, "Hey Lady! " We would share stories of my dog and her cat. Such a sweet woman! My heart goes out to you, Tammy! May God comfort you and the family!
