To Latricia Davis and family,

Earth hath no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. Latricia, you have my deepest sympathy on the loss of a wonderful mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. I have known you for over twenty years and we have shared many heart-warming discussions of our family and lives. Your mother was a very delightful woman with an infectious laugh and smile. I know that she was proud of all that you have accomplished and she will be missed. I thank you for introducing me to Ms. Brown and sharing her presence. I also admire that you are a woman of God with strong faith. You expressed to me recently that God has guided you every step of the way. On this day, may our Lord continue to guide your steps and provide you and your family with great peace, love, comfort and strength during this difficult time and always in the days ahead. With much love,
Andrea Williams & Family
