I am so sorry for the loss of Lani. She was one of a kind. There was no kinder heart or truer friend than Lani. She lit up the room like sunshine everyday. Life at school will be so different and the Halls of Blythe will never be the same. God bless you all. She was so loved and always will be!

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say.
But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness;
Here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through.
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again,
you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, They'll be here later on.
I need you here badly, you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man,"
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years.
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry: it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too;
That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain;
Then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented...that my life was worthwhile.
Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low;
Just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street
and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go....from that body to be free.
Remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me
I am so sory to hear about the loss of your love one. I remember Lani and her constant smile as she worked with my mother Ms. Bell at Blythe Elementary School. May God continue to keep and comfort you during this time of sorrow.
Edwinia Bell and Family

Jim and John,
My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult loss of Lani. What an amazing daughter and sister.
John and Jim, you both know how much we love you and have considered you all family. We are so sorry to hear about Lani. She was such a beautiful person and was such an accomplished young woman! She loved what she did and was totally happy with her job. That is a hard thing for lots of people these days, to do what they want to do and to stick with it and do it well!
I can't be there with you, but you all will be in my heart and thoughts tomorrow and for the days to come. Please stay in touch. I love you guys!
My deepest and sincere sympathy to you and your family in the loss of Lani, she was a special lady and will truly be missed. Blythe has lost a special person as well, she will always be remembered as a loving and caring person. God has received a gift.
Lani will be greatly missed. She was loyal to her students and PTA. I will cherish all the memories of Lani and the fun we had at Local, State, and National PTA events.
I am so sorry for your unexpected loss of this lovely, sweet and accomplished woman. I will keep you all in my prayers.
Ms. Lani was without a doubt, one of the sweetest, most loving, generous, kind hearted people that we have ever had the honor of knowing. She loved our children like she had known them their entire lives. Her laughter and smile could light up any room. Our hearts are heavy as we give her to our heavenly Father but we all can rest knowing that we all have a special angel watching over us.
I am deeply sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. May God's love comfort and strengthen your family during this difficult time. John 16:22
John, I don't know what to say at such a difficult time but know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. I know how much your family means to you. Thinking of you!
I am still in shock about losing Lani. Blythe Elementary School will never be the same without her smiling face and constant service to the school, staff, parents, family and especially the children.! She was taken from us way too early but I know God has a plan.
Maybe we should all reflect the way Lani loved life and loved to help do things not just for the children at school but everyone she could in all that she did. I know I will try to be mindful each day of the people around me and live my life as she did. I NEVER heard her say an unkind word about anyone. She always tried to see the positive side of things even when she should have been upset with situations that she faced or encountered. We are only on this earth for a short time and if we are going to leave a legacy....it should be one to be proud of and have no regrets as Lani did. I am so blessed to have known Lani as a friend and co-worker. I pray that the Lord above will help to ease your grief. RIP Lani. Heaven truly has a new angel...her name is Lani and I know she is dancing with Jaime.
Ms burcham was truly a wonderful teacher and friend to me and my kids we will miss her!!!!! And we will b praying for the family!
This is just a terrible loss. She was such an amazing lady!! My daughter Kaitlyn had her for prime time at Blythe Elementary. We just found this out tonight and we both were so devastated! She was always the sweetest lady!! She always participated in our fall festival at our church. I had no idea of all the other things she did for the community until I read it in the obituary. People like Mrs. Bertram are a rare breed these days. My thoughts and prayers are with soooo many people because she sure touched a lot of lives. We sure will miss you!!!
Lani will be missed at the Hephzibah Baptist Trunk or Treating. She always enjoyed handing out candy to all the kids. She will be missed
Lani was a special & unique person. Her heart held treasures, joy, love & happiness. She truly was an angel of God. She touched everyone in a special way & I know she will always hold a special place in my heart. My prayers will be with her family.
