My memories of Lorry bring such joy and peace to my soul. Her beautiful smile, her gentle spirit, her strong testimony of her faith in God regardless of her health difficulties were all recognized by those whose lives she touched. I count myself blessed to have had the pleasure of being her "next door neighbor" in the church office at Taylors First Baptist Church. What a blessed assurance we have knowing that Lorry has been healed and is in the presence of Jesus. You will be greatly missed. Robert, you have been such a blessing to my grandson, Kayden. Thank you for your love for the children of our church family. We love you and we will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
