Prayers for your family. Lawrence was a wonderful man. He and Rheba were special to our family. After her death, he would come over and visit with mom and dad. I told dad today about Lawerence's death and he wanted you know that he was thinking of you all. Prayers for peace and comfort. Ramona Craft Whichello
