    I am so sorry for the loss of my aunt I had some mighty good times with her growing up staying at her house and going to the beach every summer she was like a second mom to me I didn’t get to visit her in her later years due to my falling health but I still loved her just as much love you always

  3. Belinda Guy

  4. Jayne Lawson

    Today, I said goodbye to my Aunt Lera as she was laid to her final rest here on earth. Not many are aware that this sweet lady took me into her home when I was very young at a time when my own parents were going through rough times in their relationship. During these years, Aunt Lera provided stability in my very unstable life and treated me as if I were one of her own. It was during this time, that Aunt Lera gave me the greatest gift she could ever give. She introduced me to the Lord by faithfully taking me to the Fellowship Baptist Church in Raleigh, NC. Now, when I remember Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it,” I thank the Lord for my Aunt Lera. I firmly believe that the gospel seeds were planted in my young heart during the years I lived with her and Uncle Lawrence. Eventually, I trusted Christ as my Saviour and went on to raise my own children in the ways of the Lord. Aunt Lera and Uncle Lawrence (her husband of 67 years) never let me forget they loved me. Today, I sat in her memorial service listening to her grandson Grayson speak about her relationship with Christ, and my heart rejoiced! I know I will see her again one day! Thank you, Aunt Lera for your unconditional love toward me and for training me up in the way I should go, and thank you Pam, Mark, and Sandy for sharing your mother with me.
