We just loved mister lazenberry. Mary Beth would not leave LifeCare without going to say hello to her granddaddy. He was such a caring man an even in the midst of his struggles he trusted his Lord. And the time that we knew him he left an indelible memory. I love to hear him sit there and sing and when the guy came to talk about music and play different songs he knew everything about them. We will miss seeing him on this Earth but what a there will be in heaven. Thinking of all of you and lifting you up in prayer
