Not sure what to say?

I was sadden to learn of your mother's passing. While I did not personally know her, I am aware that the sorrow will be felt. May you feel the power of Lord she served wrapped around you and bring comfort to your hearts.

I will never forget Miss Laverne's sweet smile or spunkiness. I was a brand new preacher's wife when I first met her, and I will always cherish the time I spent with her. She was patient and kind to me and always had time to talk, even though she was usually working on a project for someone because that is what she did. She had a servant's heart and was an example of a Christian woman and elder's wife. The world's loss is heaven's gain.

To all her family. This was a precious, precious lady that God allowed to touch all our lives. She was a gracious, kind person. Always loved her say, hello Betty Campbell. Always loved her

My Dad, Ed Hester, of Benoit, MS, was a cousin of Laverne's. We began visiting each summer as we attended the family reunion. Over the years, it became a highlight of our trip. We watched as she aged over the years, but she never lost that glimmer in her eye and warm smile as we entered her room. I am sure she greeted everyone in this manner. Louise, my Mom and Tim, my brother and I visited during the last reunion and found her in the hospital. She knew who we were, even without Daddy with...

You were an inspiration and example to so many. As a young minister I was blessed to have your unwavering support to preach the truth. You allowed so many access to your life while never letting them feel they were a burden. You lived a tireless and timeless life. We will always love you and your family. Godspeed...

Dear Ralph, Gerald, Warren and family.
Your Mom was such a special person. She will always live in my heart and in the hearts of so many others
God bless her memory and God bless all of you.
Much Love,
Harry Stinson

Condolences to the Rutland family.

Warren, Patricia and family. Jim and I are sad to learning of the passing of Mrs. Laverne. She was a dear lady to us and we have so many good memories of her and Fred when we were at Red Rock. May God bless you with peace and comfort at this difficult time. Jim and Berni Mauldin.
