Like a few others, I did not know Lavon's first name is Tressie. I love it. I have an Aunt Tressie who is dear to me, now residing with Lavon in heaven. Lavon mailed a little angel figurine to me out of the blue one day, & I still have it sitting on a shelf in my home. I think of her & smile every time I see it. Lavon will be missed, but I can just imagine the joy she will bring to her new heavenly home! Prayers and love to all of you who remain.

Lavon was such a sweet lady. I have loved knowing her all those years and was blessed to have received a hug from her just a couple Sundays ago. I will miss seeing her sweet smile in church. Was honored to be there for her 80th birthday party late last year. So sorry for yoru loss Thales and Laurie (and Hailey)!
