Sweet memories do we have of Aunt LaVersa. These are what we hold on to. We might shed a tear or two but not more than that because we know that Auntie lived a good life here on earth. She taught us so many life lessons just by being in her presence. We feel fortunate to have known her. Dear God, We thank you for allowing us to know and love Aunt LaVersa. We know that she had to return to you. Amen.
