My aunt Lavenia was the most beautiful, caring and loving woman that I’ve ever known. As beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside!
She will be greatly missed! She was always there for her loved ones, not only as a caregiver but as a wife, mother and friend. She stayed with my mom and I when my dad was terminally ill with cancer. She not only helped us take care of him, but she was there to encourage us and love on us too.
I know that she is with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and will not suffer ever again!
