Offering sincere prayers and condolences to the family. Lawsie and I became lifelong friends when we were teenagers. You knew that she was a child of God by the life she lived. She was the Matron of Honor in my wedding. She was the beautician for me and my daughters until we relocated to another state. I had the joy of speaking with her by phone a week or two before she transitioned. I am so glad that God blessed us with that opportunity. Our loss is heaven’s gain. She will be truly missed.

Miss Lawsie Mae, as I affectionately called her, was the best beautician ever, and a faithful woman of God. Even after we relocated to another state, when we knew we were coming home to visit, we saved our hair appointments for Miss Lawsie Mae. She had a sweet spirit and a beautiful smile. Very patient; very kind. Heaven has another angel. RIP. Prayers and condolences to Alfred and the rest of the family.
