Lavina and Tilmon were our neighbors for the first 18 years of my life, but I really got to know her more while riding the school bus as she drove the route between Snowball and school. She was quite an amazing lady and really didn’t miss anything in her little mirror. I always liked her. Condolences to the Griffins and Rea families.
