She was an inspiration to me…Aunt LaVerne was an artist, a musician a devoted wife and mother and a beautiful Christian. She was a woman who always would direct me to God. For many years she told me that she and and her husband Uncle Bill, prayed for me daily along with their prayers for their own children. During some challenging years in my life, she called me monthly. Once she sang to me over the phone…“Something beautiful, something good. All my confusion He understood. All I had to offer Him was brokenness and strive. But, He made something beautiful of my life”. She loved me.
A few weeks ago, I was tremendously blessed to be able to sing to her…and pray for her…and encourage her over the phone. She was in her 90’s and ready to go home to her Lord. On January 20th 2014 La Verne went to her new amazing home with Jesus in heaven. The home that she had spent her life in preparation for. I am 100% convinced that she heard the words “Well done, you good and faithful servant” when she arrived to her heavenly home and meet Jesus face to face.
Below are some pictures that I took of our family…while together celebrating her life, her character and her love.
