I well remember our early days in school as well as your dear parents.. I have missed seeing you thru the years but know you lived a Christian life. Dorothy F Wood (Haggard), May 9, 2005 Kenneth, I remember your mother very fondly! As a little girl, she would allow me to follow her around her yard and help with yard work and every spring she would call me over if she saw me in the yard and show me the blooming pussy willow bush that I adored and make a few cuttings for me to take home. I remember her laugh and her smile and her always opening the screen door for me and coming outside to talk. I think of the big house often and your mother is one of my sweetest memories. Anne Hines Clark Simpson, May 9, 2005 I will always remember Lavauda fondly and think of the good times we had in the Pairs and Spares Sunday School class. Carolyn McCarley, May 9, 2005
