ADD A MEMORY
David Gossett

Regardless of the Sunday on which I would visit my parents at her church, Mrs. Lenda would always have a smile and a kind word to share. She always made myself and my daughter feel welcomed every time we saw her and her memory will live on forever in this world as one of gentle guidance for all. Her legacy is exemplified in the wonderful children she left for the rest of us to know and love, and carry on her wonderful way of life as an example to all. She will be sorely missed and never forgotten.

What do you say? You always think everyone you know, like, love should be immortal and when you find out they're not you hurt. You hurt for their family. It just won't be Smokey Road without you Lenda, but praise God you aren't hurting anymore. I'll see you again someday! My condolences to Larry Sr., Larry Jr., Gary, Tracey, Becky and Carla. I pray you find peace...
