    Linda and Family, A few moments ago I received word that Lawrence had passed. I send each of you my sincere sympathy. Lawrence and I grew up together in Rocky Point (Ashton Road) and spent many of our boyhood days together hunting, fishing, or just paling around. He was a good person and his death touches me deeply. I pray each of you will receive comfort knowing he is now with the Father. Woody

    My Dear Linda, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your sweet Lawrence. Please know that you and your family are in my prayers. May you feel the comfort and presence of the Holy Spirit during these days. Though we have not seen each other in many, many years, I have pleasant memories of our "little girl" years together; playing for hours together. Blessings! Martha
