Our sympathy to all of Aunt Laverne's family. Although we did not get to spend a lot of time with our Georgia family, we all have very fond memories of everyone. My children, Amy, Jason, and Jeff, thought Aunt Laverne was really sweet and special. So did I. I am truly saddened to hear of her passing. May God comfort you in the coming weeks and months.

So sorry to hear about "Miss Laverne". She was a sweet lady and will be missed so much. She loved facebook and everyone loved her quotes and different things on fb. She lived a good life and enjoyed it so much. I will miss her but I know that she is in a better place.
May God be with all of you and cherish all the memories that you had with her.

Dear Christi and Family, We are so very sorry for your loss. Your grandmother was such a precious woman of God. We simply adored her uplifting messages on Facebook and are absolutely sure that she has already heard the words we all strive to hear: "Well done good and faithful servant. Well done." May our gracious Lord and Savior clothe you all in the peace and comfort that transcends all understanding as you journey through this time of loss. Blessings and love to you all, Grandmother Gibson, Brenda, Pam and Jimmy.
