Jeffrey, Thomas (Myra), Jessica, Ruby, Herschell, family and friends of "Cricket" Lamb Coursey. I am so sorry for our loss, but thankful to God for having had the privilege of meeting, working, communicating, loving, learning and sharing so much with her. Cricket immulated truth and trust through the words she spoke and the kindnesses she lived. She was a wonderful person and portrayed Christ's love well. May this celebration of her life inspire us all to continue her legacy by living a Christ-like life filled with love, honesty, trust, and kindness, and may God who has welcomed Cricket home keep you in His care through this difficult time and always.
