My heart was saddened with the news of LeVeda’s passing and at the same time filled with joy in the knowledge of her presence with the Lord.
Praying for comfort for family and friends who will miss the phone calls, birthday cards and the delight of seeing her out and about. She loved her family well. God speed LaVeda
