My heartfelt sympathy to the entire family. I will always remember LaVerne's love of her family, her strong faith, her friendship and love of flowers. There are so many good memories of her when I lived at Parkwood - her delicious desserts, the painting projects she would help with and her wealth of knowledge in gardening. I am so fortunate in that I learned so much from her in life! She will be truly be missed! What a gift from God!

My deepest sympathy for your loss. What seems to be a long life is never long enough where our loved ones are concerned. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah feels the same way. That is why He has promised to swallow up death forever and soon end all our suffering. (Rev. 21:3-5; Isa. 25:8) May His promises be a soothing balm for your grieving hearts.
