    God be with her family.

  3. I knew Laverne for many years. We went to Oakwood. Wonderful lady, and I know you will miss her.
    I have a friend, Neily Bell, who was a friend of Laverne. She is in Lakeridge Nursing Home and asked me to print the obituary for her. She and Laverne were good friends.
    God bless you all.
