I'm going to miss the annual fire side get togethers with all the food one could eat. Every time we got together she was always cracking a joke and laughing. Enjoying herself and spreading her enjoyment onto others.I was blessed in having met her and am confident she is sitting at the right hand of the father looking down at us and cheering for Doug,Chelsea and Alex to also live it up and enjoy the life the lord gave them.I will miss you on this end and look forward to reuniting with you on the other side. Dennis and Pam.

Most times when the phone rang late nights, I would know it surely was LaVonne calling. We had great talks. Others were fast asleep, including Doug on the lazy boy. We had lots to talk about. LaVonne had endless patience with my computer challenges, but she was always willing to help. Her and Doug had a strong marriage and she was always supportive of her Chelsea and Alex. I ask myself what we will do without her.
