You have my deepest condolences for your loss of LaVerne. Death is truly an enemy of all of us. Our loving heavenly father Jehovah knows the pain you are in and has promised a wonderful hope of a resurrection soon to come. That promise can be found in the Bible book of Revelation in chapter 21 and verses 3,4. These verses may bring you some comfort.

Kaye Miller Marshall on May 11, 2019

Kay, Kim and the rest of the family my heartfelt sympathies for your loss. I have such fond memories of your mom from my days at Peace Lutheran. She was always so kind, sweet and soft spoken. My prayers are with you all.
