    This took me by total shock when I got the call today and it hurt. I really can’t believe I won’t be getting anymore calls from Lavern. Our friendship go back to the early 60s it started with my mom and dad, you and Howard being my parents friend. Rest in peace my dear friend now your totally healed, you can now see Jesus, your mom and your loved one’s face to face. REST WELL ?. My prayers go out to you Gary, there is nothing like a Mothers love.
