  1. Dearest Aunt Lavern,

    There are no words to express how deeply saddened I am that you’ve gone home. I never imagined that “glad morning” would come. You will be greatly missed and my heart is shattered; I’ll never forget you being there for me through all the ups and downs…

    Rest now in eternal peace 🙏🏾

    Nephew Donte
